“My Ethiopian friend brought this dish to a potluck and I've been making it ever since. It is healthy and delicious. Do not add liquid. The cabbage and potatoes release enough moisture on their own.” - by stamarex

Stir in the salt, pepper, cumin, turmeric, and cabbage and cook another 15 to 20 minutes. Add the potatoes; cover. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until potatoes are soft, 20 to 30 minutes.

"I am a huge lover of Ethiopian dishes! What is missing from this recipe is 2 teaspoons minced garlic and 1/2 tsp minced ginger ;-) I liked that you added cumin for a taste twist but it's really not ne..." See morecessary. The turmeric definitely needs to be doubled, or more to taste. Oh, and definitely reduce the oil to 1/4 cup. Oh, one more thing ... It's much easier and you'll have more control if you cook this in a large pot rather than a skillet ;-)"
"Ethiopian is probably my favorite kind of food, but I'd never tried making any real dishes (I live in the DC area where Ethio restaurants are all over). The restaurants call this dish tikil gomen.

See moreave to say this tasted almost exactly like the tikil gomen I've had before--this is probably partially because I doubled the spices (as recommended) and also used niter kibbeh, Ethiopian spiced clarified butter, instead of olive oil. (There are many various recipes for niter kibbeh online--it's really flavorful and keeps for months!) I was just looking for something to make with cabbage and potatoes, but I'm glad I found this because it inspired me to make an Ethiopian dinner with Ethiopian lentils (mesir wat). This dish turned out much better than the lentils! Definitely a keeper!"
