Here is another version of the distinctive Ethiopian spice mix that flavors many of their dishes. Use it to season grilled fish, poultry or meat during cooking, or sprinkle it on meat or vegetable dishes at the table. I found this recipe in Homemakers magazine.
- 8 teaspoons pure chile powder (ground dried red hot peppers) or 2 tablespoons cayenne pepper
- 5 teaspoons sweet paprika
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ground coriander
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 3⁄8 teaspoon ground cardamom
- 3⁄8 teaspoon ground fenugreek
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground allspice
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground cloves
- Combine and whisk together all ingredients.
- Store in airtight container.
Wowzer! This is one hot spice mix! Very delicious and we will thoroughly be enjoying this sparingly. I like this mix of spices and can see this being very good on chicken, which seems to be what others used it for! Made for Dinner and a Movie, Part 2 for ZWT7. Thanks Dreamer! :)
This is a nice spice blend, I used it on sauteed scallops and I especially like the ground coriandor seed with it. I used a little cayenne along with the chili powder - Zing!Thanks for sharing Dreamer. Made for ZWT 7 for the Food.commandos
Oh, yum! I used this on a grilled chicken thigh- massaged all over, then lifted the skin and sprinkled a bit on the flesh. Let sit for about an hour, then grilled over indirect heat. Outstanding flavor. I used ancho for the chile, as I like to taste my chiles, not get burned by them; so this may not be completely authentic, but it's a wonderful mix. Definitely a keeper!
