I used this mixture in all of the food I made for our feast... as a base. If you are sensitive to heat, you can lessen the amount of chili powder. We used 1.5 tablespoons of extra hot Indian Chili powder.
I would have used 4 tablespoons had I only been cooking for myself.. BUT.. we had friends over and I didn't want to hurt them. I have an uncanny ability to enjoy VERY hot food. 10 years ago, I was at a bar in NH and won a chili eating contest against a group of marines. I can handle more heat than anyone I know.
..but I digress... back to the not so spicy awesome Ethiopian Spice Mixes!! The Boyfriend found a recipe online he wanted to try. He made a chicken dish, Doro Wat. I am DEFINITELY going to play around with a vegan version.. I think tempeh would be a great protein for this dish. Or seitan if you are into it. I am NOT into seitan .
1 teaspoon fenugreek
1/2 cup ground chili
1/2 cup hot paprika
2 tablespoons salt
2 teaspoons ground ginger
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon cardamom
1 teaspoon coriander
1/2 teaspoon garlic
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon clove
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon allspice
Mix this all together and seal in a bag. Makes about 2 cups.
As you can see, the recipe are very similar.. but the flavors are quite different. I used some of this seasoning in one of my dishes... so yummy!
Here's a sneak peak of our feast! (sans the chicken dish) ... recipes will be coming up this week .. including the 100% Teff Injera.
sorry for the FONT issues. Blogger.. you are making The Kitty MAD today!
