So the above is the first round of what I am calling "beet stew" even though it contains beets, parsnips, potatoes, and chickpeas. Spices are cumin, mustardseed, ginger, turmeric, pepper, and chilis; it has a firey taste--not peppery hot, but it literally tastes warm and kind of the way that fire smells. Smokey, maybe; that's the parsnips doing their work.
Here's the kateh I made tonight. I was craving rice for some unseasonable reason and whipped up some lovely golden-crusted kateh. The top is a little more "burned" than "golden," but I'm not complaining.
Kateh plus stew. ^__^ (Don't you wish you had dinner at my house tonight?)
