    momaphet's Note:

    The mixture known as Nit'ir qibe, is kept handy in most Ethiopian kitchens to add flavor to meat and vegetable stews. In fact, virtually no meal in Ethiopia is made without nit'ir qibe, which gives the cooking its signature flavors.

      This was delicious. I did accidently cook until brown but it was still really good. I served over fried polenta. Thanks! Made for Zaar World Tour 2011-Africa.
