Atakilt Wat | Ethiopian Cabbage Curry

Atakilt Wat or Ethiopian cabbage curry is a mildly spiced curry which perfectly goes with rice & chapati or roti. This is a simple dish for busy days. If you have a hatred towards cabbage just like me, then this is one of the comforting recipes you would love & want to try out.
Atakilt Wat is basically served with injera, which is a spongy fermented bread with a unique texture to it. I served it with rice & a dollop of ghee. This curry can be customized easily according to your taste buds. Garnishing with cilantro adds a delectable flavor to the curry.
