Ingredients

How to make it

  • Rinse and dry the chicken pieces. Rub them with lemon juice and salt. Let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  • ~While chicken is sitting make the Berbere Spice Mix~
  • Anniez Berbere Spice Mix
  • Mix all ingredients. Place in a tightly covered container and store in a cool, dark place. This mixture can used with many combinations of legumes, rice or vegetables.
  • In a heavy enamel stewpot, cook the onions over moderate heat for about 5 minutes. Do not let brown or burn.
  • Stir in the niter kebbeh. Then add the garlic and spices. Stir well.
  • Add the berbere and paprika, and saute for 3-4 minutes.
  • Pour in the wine and water and bring to a boil. Cook briskly, uncovered, for about 5 minutes.
  • Pat the chicken dry and drop it into the simmering sauce, turning the pieces about until coated on all sides.
  • Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 25 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, piece the hard-boiled eggs with the tines of a fork, piercing approximately 1/4" into the egg all over the surface.
  • After the chicken has cooked, add the eggs and turn them gently in the sauce.
  • Cover and cook the doro wat for 15 minutes more, or until the chicken is tender and the dark meat shows no resistance when pierced with the point of a small sharp knife.
  • Add pepper to taste, if needed.

    Whoa...what a dish! Just curious, is "niter kebbeh" the same thing as clarified butter or ghee?

    An Ethiopian woman who worked for me, made a wonderful meal for our office. This was one of the dishes she made. I loved it but had no idea how to make it. Thanks for the recipe.
