Hawa Makes Digaag Qumbe (Somali Stew) | From the Test Kitchen | Bon Appétit

  • Published: 27 August 2019
  • Join Bon Appétit guest Hawa Hassan in the Test Kitchen as she makes digaag qumbe. Warming cumin, cardamom, turmeric, and ginger make this Somali chicken stew recipe a rich aromatic experience. While it’s traditional to serve stews like diaag qumbe with a whole banana (get ready for a delicious study in hot-cold, savory-sweet contrasts) and white rice, Hawa likes to put her own spin on the dish—as all of the women in her family do—by switching in fresh spinach.

                  this reminds me so much of indian/south asian cooking. always exciting to see how these spices truly transcend so far.

Only did one change, I cooked the tomato paste in the onions after the seasoning. Otherwise kept to the recipe as written. I kept the jalapeño seeds hoping for extra heat, but it was still pretty mild for our taste. Still really delicious flavors! I’ve never made any kind of curry dish from scratch, but I know my husband will want this again. Thank you for sharing your family recipe!
