What a unique way to use cottage cheese. I chose this recipe as part of my Ethiopian dinner because my husband has throat cancer and cottage cheese is one of the things he can eat with no problems. I love the citrusy-earthy flavor of the cardamom in this dish. I'll be making this again...thanks for a wonderful recipe!

The flavor using fresh ginger is far superior to the dried. If you don't use much ginger, cut it in chunks & keep it in the freezer in bags until needed. I have sensitive fingers so I either wear rubber gloves to handle hot peppers or my husband, who is not bothered by the capsaisin, chops them. It's delicious when made according to the recipe.

An interesting use of cottage cheese! The spices used are very unique, albeit expensive. Changes to the recipe include 1/2 tsp. of powdered ginger instead of 1 Tbs of minced fresh ginger and less spinach. Due to my inability to handle anything with capsaicin, I also skipped the green peppers. Overall, I call it a success with its ethnic twist on boring 'ol cottage cheese and unique use of flavors.
