      I haven't tried this recipe because I do not have the machine to dry out the Quwanta. However, I love this Ethiopian snack and usually buy a quantity from a store in Wheaton, Maryland called Ethiopia Plus. It is a delicious and spicy snack and once you start, you won't put it down until it is all gone. If you have an Ethiopian beer to enjoy with it, so much the better. Good luck from Cliff Matheson in Bethesda, Maryland.
