DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse and cook the lentils.
  • Meanwhile saute the onions and garlic in the niter kebbeh, until the onions are just translucent.
  • Add the berbere, cumin, and paprika and saute for a few minutes more, stirring occasionally to prevent burning.
  • Mix in the chopped tomatoes and tomato paste and simmer for another 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Add 1 cup of vegetable stock or water and continue simmering.
  • When the lentils are cooked, drain them and mix them into the saute.
  • Add the green peas and cook for another 5 minutes.
  • Add salt and black pepper to taste.
  • To serve Yemiser W'et, spread layers of injera on individual plates.
  • Place some yogurt or cottage cheese alongside a serving of w'et on the injera and pass more injera at the table.
  • To eat, tear off pieces of injera, fold it around bits of stew, and, yes, eat it with your fingers.
