In Ethiopia, barley is one of the top cereal grains and it is used in many ways. I like the lightly roasted barely (Yebeseo Dukete) which is mixed and blended with fruits.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 pears (peeled, seeded) or 2 mangoes (peeled, seeded)
  • 12 cup barley flour (Yebeso Dukete)
  • 1 teaspoon honey or 12 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 cups cold water
  • 4 ice cubes


  1. If roasted barely flour is unavailable (a) Take 3 cups of barley seeds, soak and remove inedible outer skin (b) lightly roast the seeds for five minutes (c) grind the seeds (d) add ½ teaspoon roasted garlic powder and ¼ teaspoon ginger powder and grind it more (d) keep it tight and store it in fridge.
  2. Chop the fruits.
  3. Pour 2 cups of cold water in a blender, add ½ of the barely flour, fruits, honey and ice cubes; Blend it well; Serve it cold.
  4. * Roasted Barely flour (Yebeso Dukete) is available in Ethiopian groceries.
