 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 c Onion; sliced
  • 10 Cloves Garlic; sliced thin
  • 2 c Carrots; sliced thin
  • 1 c Water
  • 3 tb Corn oil
  • 1 ts Tumeric; ground
  • 1 Fresh hot green peppers;
  • -halved, to 3 peppers
  • 1 lb Cabbage; coarsely sliced

  • 1 tb Tomato paste
  • 1 ts Salt; to taste

Aleecha is a mixed vegetable stew. Quemam contains an ingredient not found
in the US. I'd substitute dry berbere spice mix. In dry pan over moderate
low heat, stir fry onion, garlic, and carrots for 2 mins. Add 1/2c of the
water and cook 5 mins longer. Add the oil and continue to simmer.

Add the tumeric, chilies, and cabbage. Cover the pan and steam to reduce
the bulk for 2 mins. Stir well and add the quemam, tomato paste, salt and
the potatoes.

Cover the pan and cook for 5 mins. Add the remaining water and simmer for 5
minutes more to soften the potatoes and thicken the sauce somewhat.

Serve at room temperature with Injeera.
