Ethiopian lentil dish. For a complete Ethiopian feast, make this dish with (other recipes from my book): - Cabbage of Ostracism - Tofu Dorowat (if you like tofu, or are accomodating a vegetarian... chicken otherwise) - Beef Stew in Berbere Sauce Making these four dishes together, you can: - Pick up one lg white onion and chop it finely. Split it four ways between the dishes. - Pick up one 28-oz can of crushed tomatoes and split it between the Dorowat and Beef Stew Start the beef early, then the dorowat. Then, do the lentils (assuming pre-cooked potatoes) and cabbage. Pick up some Enjera (that amazing yummy bread). Live in Calgary? Pick it up fresh at Amy's Confectionary on 7th between 11AM and 5PM. YUMM!!!
- Boil the lentils in water for 5 minutes. Drain, reserving liquid.
- In large pot, saute the anaheim pepper and onions in the butter until the onions are tender.
- Add the lentils, 6 cups of the reserved liquid (top up with water to make 6 cups), and the remaining ingredients and bring to a simmer.
- Cook, covered over M-L heat for 70 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
