Place a deep, lidded, non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add the onion and carrot and a good splash of water and stir-fry for 5 minutes.
Stir in the garlic, spices and thyme, and stir-fry for 1 minute.
Add the rice and stir until the grains are coated in the spices. Stir in the chopped tomatoes, tomato purée, peppers, crumbled stock cubes and 900ml boiling water. Increase the heat to high and bring to the boil. Stir well and cover, reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 15 minutes.
