Happy Easter to you all!
This year, my Easter is going to be different form the other years. No traditions, no great Easter dinners as we are going to Ethiopia!
At first, I was really inclined to making injera once again, maybe with some different side dishes..but then I said “No! You should do something else for Ethiopia!”
And so here I am having found a way to recycle the little injera that was left over from Eritrea.
First one on the menu was Timatim Firfir, which is a tomato salad.
The recipe is easy and the result is lovely. I have slightly changed the recipe linked here.
- 1 tsp of berberé sauce
- 1/3 cuo of wine
- the juice of 1 lemon
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 chopped tomato
- 1/2 chopped onion
- 1 chopped green pepper
- 1 clove of garlic
- left over injera torn into small pieces
- salt and pepper
- 1 chili
If you would like to add more tomatoes, onions or bell peppers, feel free to do so.
You start by mixing the berberé sauce with the wine. Then you’ll add the lemon juice and the olive oil. You’ll stir in the tomato, pepper, onion and crushed or chopped clove of garlic.
You’ll add the injera and mix well. The liquid has to be absorbed almost entirely. Refrigerate it before serving it, because it is to be served cold. (I preferred it to be not that cold).
For the sambusa I have followed this recipe and I admit that I might not be that good at folding the wraps nicely cone shaped 😀

- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 500 g minced meat (I used beef)
