In a medium sized saucepan, heat the oil on the stove and sauté the onion, garlic, pepper and chilli for approximately 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, sweet and sour sauce, chutney, red wine vinegar and sour cream. Stir and cook for another 2 minutes. Add the stock cube, fresh basil, dried herbs and beans.
