Minchet abish

ethiopia
| | Comments (0)

This is one of my favourite Ethiopian dishes, which I learnt about in Ethiopia during a couple of visits.  It is a very rich dish for a special occasion, typically eaten with injera (Ethiopia's staple flat 'bread') and ayib be gomen (cottage cheese with spinach).

Injera, berbere, nit'ir qibe (spiced butter) and shiro powder are available in London's Ethiopian shops and restaurants.
