Tabeekh (Yemeni Stewed Vegetables)

05.18.2012

Ingredients

2 potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 tomato, chopped
handful of okra, chopped
1/2 small eggplant, chopped
1/2 small zuchinni, chopped
1/3-1/2 cup tomato sauce
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 chopped green chilis
1 tsp. hawaij
salt to taste, 3/4 tsp.
1/4 cup oil

How to make

Chop onion, garlic, and green chili and sauté in oil over medium heat until onion and garlic are browned, about 7-10 minutes. Add chopped tomatoes and tomato sauce and cook in oil until the liquid from tomatoes has evaporated, and oil the turns red, about 5 minutes. Add okra, potatoes, zucchini, eggplant, hawaij, and water. Cover and boil over medium heat until potatoes are soft and most of the liquid has evaporated, about 15-20 minutes. Watch the vegetables to make sure they do not burn.Serve with rice or saltah.

This is how my husband (who is Yemeni) taught me to make it...although I use a lot of spices and usually stew meat in there too...makes it much richer. But it looks about the same. Good stuff, yummy! I looked up your recipe because I couldn't remember how I did it, it's been over a year since I made a good batch of Tabeekh (which I was spelling Tabiyech. Your spelling is better).

Thank you for the recipe. I lived in Hadharamowt, Yemen for a few years and this was a most economical dish as the bag of vegetables only cost 50 cents USD. Excellent....thank you again.
