Heat the oil in a skillet and add the tomato paste. Then, tip the curry, paprika, thyme, and ginger and cook for 5 minutes.
Now, rinse the rice and add it to the tomato sauce along with bay leaves. Cover with water, bring to a boil, and simmer for 15 minutes.
Finally, stir in the peas, sliced okra, and one diced pepper, and cook for 10 minutes or until the sauce has reduced. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
