Dish: Tikel Gomen (Ethiopian Cabbage, Carrots & Potatoes)

The weather has been crazy this winter. We had temperatures waaay below freezing, thanks to the so-called polar vortex and then there was snow and rain. We had a couple of days respite, but the prediction for next week seems to be below freezing again. I can't wait for this winter to get over.

Coming back to the task in hand, BM# 36, for the last Ethiopian dish of the week, I made a dish with cabbage, carrot & potatoes. This dish is made very similar to an Indian curry and has very similar taste profile as well. I made some Injera to serve along with Mesir wat and this Tikel gomen.
