1. Place a large non-stick saucepan over a medium heat and add the beef and onions. Cook together for 5 minutes, stirring the beef and pressing it against the sides of the pan to break up the lumps.

4. Season with a pinch of salt and plenty of freshly ground black pepper.
5. Bring to a simmer on the hob, then cover loosely with a lid. Reduce the heat and leave to simmer gently for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally until the mince is tender and the sauce is thick
6. Just before serving, stir in the Black Garlic Ketchup and adjust the seasoning to taste.
7. Serve with plain or cumin rice, garlic bread and a good helping of Hawkshead Relish Mango Chutney.
