Spaghetti Bolognese my way

I don't think this is the right recipe, but it's absolutely satisfy my Indonesian tongue. We Indonesian, like most asian loves food with the strong taste. & as a moslem I don't use any wine ... Most of the people that ever taste my bolognese sauce loves it .... & really I don't think of showing of .... ;p

300 grams of minced beef
100 gram grated carrot
1/2 can of tomato paste
300 cc of tomato puree
1 chopped anion
1 chopped garlic
1 tea spoon dried basil
2 tea spoon dried oregano
1 table spoon sugar
3 table spoon salad oil
250 grams of spaghetti, cooked till aldente

Heat the oil, add chopped anion, stir until it goes translucent than add garlic continue stirring. Add minced beef, cooked until meet goes brown. Add tomato paste, tomato puree, carrot, basil, oregano & salt. Bring all in boil, turn the heat down & simmer, for about 45 minutes. Add sugar.

The key of this sauce are first the addition of carrot, it's not to give more volume but to give some kind of "sweetness", second it's the 45 minutes of simmering in low heat. Without this two the bolognese sauce will not taste good....

Serve the spaghetti with the bolognese sauce , springkle with a bit of parmesan cheese ... & of course for Indonesian you cannot leave the chilli sauce behind ...
