Make the matazeez broth. Set a large saucepan over a medium-high heat and add the oil. Brown the meat on all sides then remove from the pan. Cook the onion, garlic and chilli for 2-3 minutes until starting to soften, then mix in the spices.
Add the sieved tomatoes and tomato paste along with 350ml water. Bring to the boil then add the vegetables and return the meat to the pan. Cook for 35-40 minutes or until the meat and vegetables are tender.
While the broth cooks, make the dumplings. Put the flour, salt and oil in a bowl. Slowly add the water, mixing all the time to create a dough. Cover for 20 minutes.
Dust your work surface with flour and tip out the dough. Knead for 2 minutes then roll into a thin circle. Use a cookie cutter to stamp our circles, then cook in the matazeez both. It should take 8-10 minutes to cook the dumplings.
