    1. 1
      Start by slicing the potatoes crosswise into circular slices, dropping them as you go into cold water to stop them from discolouring.
    2. 2
      If you want to be fancy, use a small knife to cut out narrow v-shaped wedges 1/4 inch deep at 1/2 inch intervals all around the outside of the potatoes.
    3. 3
      Also cut the carrots lengthwise into quarters and then crosswise into 2-inch lengths.
    4. 4
      When you are ready to cook the veggies, first drop the potatoes into boiling water, then add the carrots and beans.
    5. 5
      Boil for 5 minutes, then drain and run cold water over them to stop the cooking process.
    6. 6
      Set them aside to drain completely.
    7. 7
      Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large saucepan and add the onions, green pepper and chilies.
    8. 8
      Cook for about 5 minutes until the veggies are soft but not brown.
    9. 9
      Add the garlic, ginger, salt and pepper and stir for a minute or so.
    10. 10
      Add the reserved vegetables and the scallions and mix until everything is coated in oil.
    11. 11
      Reduce the heat to low, cover partially and cook for about 10 minutes or until the veggies are tender but still crisp to the bite.

      Tasty! I used niter kebbeh to saute the vegetables instead of the vegetable oil. It worked out fabulously! I'm on a low glycemic diet, so I substituted yams for the potatoes. It was difficult to tell the difference.

      Just tried this recipe because I was looking for something different. It was delicious, although it took me a little longer to prepare than the time given on the recipe. Very much like the Ethiopian dishes I get at my favorite Ethiopian restaurant. I definitely suggest using fresh green beans instead of canned or frozen.
