Vibrantly red in colour, Ethiopian Berbere is a staple blend of the cuisine, providing a backbone of flavour to many regional dishes with its delicate yet powerful combination of fenugreek, ginger and garlic, cinnamon and a piquant hit of chilli powder. The name ‘Berbere’ derives from the Ethiopian word Barbare meaning ‘hot’ which originally stems from the Ancient Ethiopian word for pepper ‘papare’. Use to make Ethiopia’s national dish ‘Wat’ (curry) or add a sprinkling to meat, vegetables or grains to add a fiery hit and warm red hue.
