This meal here was made and presented by my 10 year old daughter. She’s still learning but it was absolutely delicious, the whole family enjoyed it. We’ll dive right into what she did…


Do this

  1. Get your ingredients together. Prepare the spaghetti according to the instructions on the packet. When it’s done and you’ve rinsed it, return it to the pot. In a separate small pot, put 2 tbsp oil, add 1 tsp garlic and slowly heat it up until fragrant. Pour this into the pot with spaghetti and mix until well incorporated. Set aside.
  2. In a separate pot, heat remaining 2 tbsp oil in pan and add the carrots, onion, curry powder, garlic and ginger. Fry whilst stirring regularly until the onions begin to brown. Add the mince and salt. Fry until it also begins to brown.
  3. Add tomatoes and tomato paste. Stir and add water. Simmer on low heat until the tomatoes are cooked. Taste for seasoning and adjust accordingly. Enjoy!
