Fatma’s Cabbage


I have always enjoyed this at potlucks. It’s usually either the Amharic, Eriterian, or Oromo sisters who have shared this dish. I called my Eriterian friend Fatma and asked her for this recipe . So here it is for us all to enjoy.

1) small cabbage chopped

2) 2 potatoes ( medium) chopped into bite size pieces

3) carrots sliced into rounds

4) 3-4 tblsp of olive oil

5) 1 medium onion chopped

6) 3 cloves of garlic minced

7) 1/2 tsp of turmeric

8) 1 tsp of curry powder

9) salt to taste

Cook the cabbage in a little olive oil until it wilts. Take it out. Then brown the potatoes in the same oil. Just until they’re browned, but not cooked through. Then take them out out. Do the same to the carrots.

Once you’re down with the frying of the vegetables above –that is the cabbage, the potatoes, and the carrots–take a pot and place on the stove at medium high heat. Then add the chopped onion  and  minced garlic. Once they have browned, add the turmeric and curry powder. Add a little water so the spices don’t burn. Now add the fried vegetables. Once they’re all looking nice and yellow add a little more water and transfer to a baking dish. Cover and cook in oven at 350 degrees fahrenheit until all the water has evaporated and the vegetables are soft.I serve this with lahoh [Yemeni bread that looks a little like Injera].
