1 tsp tomato puree
1 1/4 cup coconut milk
2 carrots, peeled and diced
hot pepper, to taste

Fry the onion in hot oil, in a large saucepan, for a few minutes.

Add the tomatoes and tomato puree.

While stirring, fry over a moderate gas for 5 - 6 minutes.

Stir in 1/4 cup of the coconut milk and continue to cook until the mixture is reduced and thick. Add the rest of the coconut milk, carrots, hot pepper, ginger, bayleaf and salt.

Bring to the boil, and add the rice and the remaining vegetables, stirring with a fork.

Reduce to a low heat, cover and cook until the rice has absorbed most of the liquid.

Remove the lid, cover with foil and replace the lid until the rice is done.
