If you love Ethiopian food, this is a must-try. This is one of my favorite dishes. Serve hot over injera with the sauce to soak up.

  • Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat; add onion and a pinch of salt. Cook and stir onion until softened and translucent, 5 to 10 minutes. Add garlic and ginger; cook and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add beets and stir to combine. Pour water over beet mixture and sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon salt; bring to a boil.

  • Cover pot and reduce heat to medium-low; simmer, stirring occasionally, until beets are easily pierced with a fork, 20 to 25 minutes. Add potatoes and cook until potatoes are soft but not falling apart, about 15 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Adjust the salt and water content depending on how much sauce you'd like to have and is pleasing to your palate.
