Here's Two Delicious Ethiopian Dishes to Try

Those tired of eating the same old thing have been trying cuisines like Ethiopian cuisine. This often misunderstood cuisine is a delicious take on some of the spicy and rich flavors which you can enjoy. The foods which have been created are high in protein and provide a good amount of nutrition because they were created specifically for those who are working long hours in the field every day. The reason why there is such a predominant use of spices is because when the body is heated through spices, it is possible for you to feel cooler. Jalapenos and other hot peppers like cayenne are common in these dishes.

The two main dishes which people will try first is tibs and fit-fit. These different dishes represent the dinner and the breakfast dishes respectively. They are common in most restaurants as well as in the homes of those who cook these kinds of dishes all of the time. The best way to make sure that you are eating the right kinds of food is to get to know these two kinds of dishes a little bit better.

Tibs You Can Try

The main thing to remember whenever you are getting ready to eat tibs is that you will be eating with your hands. The dish which is prepared cuts up all of the food that you will eat into bite sized pieces. The majority of people will order their tibs along with Injera. This is the bread which is soft and spongy. It is slightly sour tasting and helps you to be able to pick up the food without having to actually touch it with your hands.

You can use just about any kind of meat or seafood whenever you are making tibs as it is more about the preparation than anything else. The special herbs and spices which the meat and vegetables are simmered in are prepared in the traditional manner which was developed to pay homage to a special guest. It is common that you will be able to try this dish if you are visiting an Ethiopian family for the first time.

Fit-Fit for Any Time

The breakfast item of fit-fit takes the kitcha or injera that is left over and fries it along with berbere, cayenne pepper, to create a dish which will wake you and your mouth up. The common way to make this is pan fried with niter kebbah (seasoned clarified butter). It is eaten along with yogurt or some other kind of cooling dairy product so that you will be able to have some extra protein as well as a mouth which is not on fire.

While this is traditionally a breakfast dish, many people will eat this as a snack throughout the day. It is something which is often found at different kinds of weddings or special events because it can easily be picked up with the hands and eaten while doing other things. It is a good introduction to Ethiopian cuisine for the adventurous.
