Digaag Qumbe

Every year around Christmas-time, Tyler's family tries to venture out and try a new dish we've never had before. A tradition meant to break tradition. Last year, it was the Somalian dish Digaag Qumbe. This was the last time Tyler's immediate family was able to all get together before the pandemic hit, so its a very nice memory to have!


Digaag Qumbe is essentially a chicken stew with yogurt, coconut milk, and a great combination of many spices. It is best served on rice or spinach, but the best part is pairing it with a freshly peeled banana. The blend of spice and cream, hot and cold, savory and sweet; it's a symphony of contradictions. Check out this handy video which introduced the recipe to Tyler below...
