I'm looking forward to any help you might get. And if there's a master Ethiopian cook out there, any tips to recipes for
KEY SIR ALICHA; red beets, carrots and potatoes
YATAKILT ALICHA; cabbage, carrot, potatoes, delicately sauteed with peppers onions and garlic
SHIRO; crowned chick peas, mildly spiced, cooked with chopped onions and tomatoes
