Introduction

In Ethiopia, many families grew cabbages outside their hut to provide a regular supply. The carrots are a recent addition to this lightly spiced dish, giving it color and a note of sweetness. Cooking cabbage in fat gives it extra flavor and a firmer texture. This dish is customarily served over injera (Ethiopian flat bread).

Ingredients

    1/4 cup ghee or vegetable oil
    1 onion, chopped
    1 small green bell pepper, seeded, deribbed (white removed), and finely chopped
    1 to 3 jalapeno chilies, seeded and minced
    1 tablespoon mustard seeds
    1 head (2 pounds) green or savoy cabbage, cored and coarsely shredded
    1 to 3 carrots, coarsely grated (optional)
    1/2 cup water
    About 1 teaspoon table salt or 2 teaspoons kosher salt
    Ground black pepper to taste

Directions

1. In a large, heavy pot, melt the ghee over medium-high heat. Add the onion, bell pepper, and chilies and sauté until softened, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir in the mustard seeds.
2. Add the cabbage and, if using, the carrots and sauté until the cabbage is slightly wilted, about 5 minutes. Add the water, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce the heat to medium, and simmer, adding more water if necessary, until just tender but still slightly crunchy, about 15 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
