Soak the dried chilies in 100 ml of hot water for about 20 minutes and reserve the water. Then chop the chilies finely.
Heat the oil in a large pan and fry the onions and garlic until softened.
Add the spices, salt, chilies and tomato puree to the onions and fry together for 2-3 minutes.
Add the mince and fry until the mixture is well browned. This should take about 10-15 minutes.
Tip in the beans and mix thoroughly.
Add the tomatoes, chicken stock and reserved chili water, stir well and simmer for 5-7 minutes.
When it's reached the consistency you prefer, remove from the heat and serve with rice and a little soured cream dip.
