For The Filling
1. In a pot, heat oil on medium heat. Add onions and garlic and sauté them till onion is lightly brown. Add in the meat and fry till it is brown.
2. Season with thyme, curry powder and bouillon cube, mix well. Pour 1 cup water, stir, cover and cook for 5 minutes.
3. Add in the carrot, potatoes and 1 cup of water. Season with salt and pepper to taste, cover the pan and let it cook till all the vegetables are tender and soft.
