A traditional dish from Ethiopia. There are the usual variations on this theme, normal with any traditional food, but the Berbere spice mix is non-negotiable! Apparently Ethiopian women are only considered ready for marriage when they can make a good Berbere! Make this during a chilly winter weekend! Don't faint at the spice ingredients: it is indeed hot and red, but whatever you don't use for this stew will keep for 6 months in the fridge, and the stew won't make you go up in flames! This is served with the wellknown Injera bread -- a large flat bread which is often used as an edible "plate" as well. Ethiopians would normally tear off a piece of Injera, fold it slightly, and scoop the stew from the bowl with it. This is hard to do unless you're Ethiopian, so rather serve some flat bread separately, and eat with knife and fork! It's a lovely robust stew, and also economical. Prep and cooking time does NOT include time for making the spice mixture and boiling the eggs, which you might want to do beforehand anyway.
