Ethiopia, a country from the Horn of Africa is known not only for its ancient culture but also for its flavoursome food. Due to the tradition to follow strictly vegan and lactose-free diets while fasting during special days, the Ethiopians have evolved many dishes which shall help you to skip the meat and go green. You can indulge in an assortment of plant-based Ethiopian recipes at the House of Injera.
The Essentials of Ethiopian recipes we use consist of traditional combinations of spices prominently “Berbere”, and the spicy “Mitmita”. They include the likes of garlic, onions, red chilli peppers, ginger, cumin, and cardamom which are sun-dried and grounded. The dishes include the goodness of various veggies, legumes and lentils like eggplants, tomatoes, olives, carrots, chick-pea and green beans.
With a healthy filling of lentils, it is made by wrapping a dough sheet around the spicy filling and frying it. This crispy dough pastry tastes best with chilli and spicy sauces.
