 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2       tb           Ghee -ÿÿvegetable oil
    3       ea           Whole cloves
    1       lg           Onion, chopped
    2       ea           Garlic cloves, crushed
    1       c            Potatoes, cubed
    2       c            Carrots, diced
    2       c            Green beans, chopped
      1/2   tb           Berbere
      1/2   tb           Hungarian paprika
      1/2   c            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.
