for another 30minutes. Make sure to skim the scum off the top using a skimmer.

For Dry, blend leaves before placing them in the pot.

Chop the coriander and garlic very finely and fry in a frying pan until leaves are
wilted and garlic is translucent then directly add to the Mulukhieyh pot and mix well


Poke a whole tomato and drop into the pot to suck up all the runny liquid and keep
cooking at low temperature
