Simple recipe to make ‘Shiro Alecha’:
In a pot heat 1/2 cup olive oil add 1/2 cup chopped red onion, and 2 cloves of chopped garlic, saute until brown (3-4 min.), add 1-2tsp Turmeric powder, Simmer a few minutes, then add 2 cups of water and bring to a boil, whisk in 3/4 cup ‘Shiro Alecha’ a teaspoon at a time, stirring to prevent lumps. Add more water or oil as needed and continue cooking, add water or oil to smooth it out if it’s getting too lumpy or thick. Let cook on low heat until it becomes thick but smooth (15-20min.), more like a stew. Stir in salt to taste. Serve hot with Injera bread.
