What’s In The Dish
BERBERE is a combination of peppers, garlic, onion and other spices that is dried and ground into a powdered form. It has a full-bodied taste with a bit of heat (spiciness) and is very versatile, complimenting both meat and vegetable dishes.
MITMITA is also a combination spice. It is made from hotter peppers, and still contains onions, garlic, cumin, ginger and other spices. It is also dried and ground. Mitmita also has a full-bodied taste, but has much more heat than Berbere.
AWAZE is paste of hot peppers (Berbere) containing garlic, ginger, salt and other spices.
INJERA is both plate and utensil. Injera is large crepe-like bread on which a stew is served and with which one eats the stew served up upon it. One tears a small piece of Injera, wraps it around a mouthful of stew and eats it.
TESMI Butter cooked with garlic, ginger, cardamom, and coriander and other exotic Eritrean spices. The butter is strained through cheese cloth to become purified.
