  • 2 onions, finely diced

  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed

  • 6 tomatoes, diced

  • 1 tbsp raisins

  • 1.5L chicken stock

  • 1 smoked paprika

  • 1/3 tsp chilli powder

  • ½ tsp powdered ginger

  • 1 tbsp honey


  • 1.

    Sweat onions in olive oil really well, add garlic and cinnamon for 3-4 minutes. Add all the spices and cook for 5 min.

  • 2.

    Add tomatoes and cook for 3 min, then add raisins and honey, and a pinch of salt. Add hot chicken stock and bring to the boil and simmer.
