          Lool yeah Somalis can be carnivores lol. :)

          Okay here's pasta and suugo which is kinda something we put over pasta or rice but it's a very very very different topping then store pasta sauce. I'd say it's like stew.

          Here's the recipe (how I do it at least hehe):

          1. Make sure you have onions (maybe 2 or 3), tomatoes (2), oil, green bell peppers (1 is enough I think), you can add a red or orange bell pepper too if you like, a lot of meat, can of tomato sauce (I like using tomato sauce, it's easier than watering and then adding multiple spices so for now tomato sauce would be easier haha), a few carrots or more if you like, and then you can choose between using a lot of cabbage or a lot of potatoes. Most Somalis use potatoes but personally I like cabbage. You can use as little or as much as seems right for your fam. Also don't forget the meat!

          2. Put pot at heat, then pour in a good amount of meat chunks. Then pour in enough olive oil for it to fry well and also add salt and garlic powder. Mix it until it fries and softens properly :) While you'e at it you can start chopping the onions and tomaotoes.

          3. When ya do that, pour in onions and let it fry as well. When it looks fried add the chopped up tomatoes and bell peppers. Mix it well and remember when it gets hot and dry keep adding a little more water as you go.

          4. Peel potatoes (if you choose to add them) and make them into small chunks and add a lot to the pot and mix well, add more water.

          5. Mix it well, peel carrots, wash carrots, wait for a long while and keep adding water when it gets dry. Dump in more salt, cumin powder, coriander powder, red spice, and if you use other spices add what you like. be creative lol, one good thing about somali cuisine is there is no really one right way to go about it! ;)

          6. Later on when it seems to have cooked well, add the carrots last. Mix it and when it softens add the tomato sauce (as much as you think looks okay) and then mix it again. Later on if you choose cabbage and not potatoes skip the step on potatoes and cut up maybe a half a cabbage and add it to the pot at the last minute. In a little while it'll start smelling really nice and then you can pretty much guess when it's done.

          7. To make it look pretty and nice you can cut up a bit of cilantro and then sprinkle it on top. :) And then if you have pasta or rice ready you can pour it on when you're done. Or you can eat it with bread. I like eating it with bread:o

          Anyway this sounds confusing cuz I'm not good at explaining dishes but I hope it helps. :)

                        I thought there is no food in Somalia. What's the point of there being recipes? Correct me, if I'm wrong.

                          you have zikni with Canjeero pls youtube how to make that.

                          Marg

                          • Cut onion
                          • add garlic
                          • and cumin powder (somali spice mix check the video)
                          • vegetables you can which ever you like in here it could frozen or fresh
                          • chicken stock or salt
                          • Add tomato can in the mixing machine with coriander
                          • meat or chicken (you can either choose a meat or chicken)
                          • add potatoes and green pepper wait and let it be cooked.

                          Chicken

                          • lemon,

                          • Cook it in the oven or on the pan. forgot you add onion/ green pepper

                          if want fried chicken id recommend the 'Tex's Hot & Spicy Fried Chicken Coating' i dont know if the somalis use it but the chicken taste so good with that coating! im somali btw

                          shes really good keep watching Xawaash videos check out the 'Somali Spice Mix' and the '2 Somali Hot Sauces' i haven't posted the link here as it contains music.

                          those mixed spices are really good with most food and the chilli is also nice to have with on any main food

                          we usually add the garlic in a mixer put them in ice cubes in the freezer take them out put it in plastic freezing bags, so it makes it easier to get access to garlic without having to cut garlic each time you cook


                          I hope this helped you sis if you need more recipe you can always pm me or let me know here good luck! :)
