Recipe Name: African Style Vegetables In Coconut Milk Submitted by: Administrator

Course: Side Dish  
Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 4

2 Tablespoon(s) Ghee -=OR=- vegetable oil
3 Whole cloves
1 Onion, chopped
2 Garlic cloves, crushed
1 Cup(s) Potatoes, cubed
2 Cup(s) Carrots, diced
2 Cup(s) Green beans, chopped
1/2 Tablespoon(s) Berbere
1/2 Tablespoon(s) Hungarian paprika
1/2 Cup(s) Coconut milk
Salt & pepper
Cilantro, chopped
Heat ghee or vegetable oil with the whole cloves over low heat. When
hot, add the onions & garlic & saute, stirring occasionally, for a few
moments. Add the carrots & potatoes & continue to saute for 5 minutes,
stir to prevent sticking. Add the green beans & saute for just a few
more minutes. Slowly stir in the coconut milk. Use only as much as you
need to create a thick sauce: the vegetables should not be swimming in
milk. Carefully bring to a boil, reduce heat & simmer until the
vegetables are cooked, 15 to 20 minutes. Stir occasionally otherwise
the milk & vegetables will burn. Garnish with cilantro. Serve with an
Ethiopian Lentil stew or with an Indian dal to mix cuisines, & bread.
If you prefer the vegetables to be hotter, add more berbere. It is
best if this dish is made ahead of time & then left to let the
flavours marry. In place of cilantro, use fresh parsley. Recipe by
