A simple sauce that is super flavourful and goes beautifully with all kinds of pastas, even works wonderfully in lasagnas!
Heat the oil, then fry the onions until translucent, then add the ginger and garlic pastes. Fry for a minute, then add the mince and fry on high heat until brown and crumbly. Use a wooden spoon to break any lumps in the meat.
Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, sugar and all the herbs and spices, bring to a boil, then lower the heat and let this simmer for about an hour until most of the liquid is gone and you have a thick sauce. The longer you simmer this the tastier the results.
Once thick, turn off the heat and use! This sauce can also be frozen and used whenever needed. :)
