Recipe by Brenda.
From Nirmala Narine. A little different than the other doro wat's posted. This stew is spicy, so please keep that in mind if you try it.

A friend told me how to make it before but I wanted specific measurements and this recipe was closest to how she make s it and her Doro Wat is excellent. I did some things different it, I put the onions in the food processor and I added a tomato. I cooked the onion, tomato, garlic and ginger til you couldn't even tell the onions were onions and it was basically mush and that took a long time at least a hour, then I added the berbere and mixing for 30 minutes til it was thick and dark red. Then the chicken broth, lime juice and Chicken cooked for a hour after that and 15 before that hour was over I added my boiled eggs in pot because I like them to have the full flavor of the sauce. I Love this recipe thanks a bunch :)
