Ethiopia - Timitam Salata | Tomato Salad

The next post under the Ethiopian cuisine is this very simple salad. This too had a lot of variations and in some recipes lettuce was added and I even found a version that used nigella seeds! Some had garlic and even berbere spice mix in the dressing!I went for this version since most of them had made it this way.

I used:

Tomato- 2, cut into small chunks
Onion-1, chopped
Green chilies- 2, chopped[I used the less spicier variety]

For the dressing :

Lemon juice-2 teaspoons
Olive oil- 1 teaspoon
Pepper powder to taste
Salt to taste


  1. Mix the dressing ingredients in a bowl.
  2. In another large bowl, take the chopped veggies .Pour the dressing over it. Toss to mix. Cover and chill for at least half an hour before serving.



Serve chilled as a side dish with Injera.


So there you have it-  D'ba Zigni and Timitam Salata served with an Injera look - alike! Hope you enjoyed the meal.

Bon Appetit...
