Berbere (Ethiopian Spice)
For those of you who have difficulty locating berbere in your local grocery store, this recipe is a good substitute that is easy to make. Note that it is quite spicy, so use to taste. This spice combination is used in many Ethiopian dishes including doro wat, an Ethiopian chicken dish.
Berbere should keep in the refrigerator for about 3 months if kept in an airtight container.
Finely grind any spices (cloves, fenugreek, etc.) using a mortar and pestle or electric coffee grinder.
