Niter Kibbeh

Learn more about niter kibbeh here ยป

Niter kibbeh is a spice blend always at the peak of freshness since you lock the flavors into clarified butter. There are as many recipes for niter kibbeh as there are Ethiopian cooks; this ingredient list is just what I've found most satisfying and well-balanced. The coriander and bay leaves aren't strictly traditional, but they help unite this diverse array of spices into a satisfying whole. If you're cooking vegan, swap out the butter for oil. Ethiopian dishes are some of the best vegan fare I know, and vegan niter kibbeh is almost as good as its dairy counterpart.
