Adapted from a recipe posted by: jrt
Is one of those catch all names for a legume stew. It can be made with chickpeas, fava beans, green peas, yellow lentils, red lentils or any combination of these. You roast and grind the legumes into flour. If you buy it (like I did) it comes as either plain (shiro alecha) or pre-spiced with Berbere (mit’in shiro). When you add it to the other ingredients it cooks quickly into a thick stew.
