Use our collection of spices to make Niter Kibbeh, an Ethiopitan spiced ghee (clarified butter). Use it as a base for doro wat - start the dish by caramelizing onions in the spiced butter before adding Berbere and paprika. The result is an extra layer of flavor. Or simply use it to cook rice or vegetables. You can use it as simple table butter, spreading it on toast, topping pancakes and waffles, or brush onto a hot biscuit.
1 lb unsalted Butter
1 Onion, chopped
2-4 Garlic Cloves, minced
1 in piece of Ginger, peeled and minced
Place all ingredients in a small pot over low heat. Watch over the pot for the next 15 minutes. The butter will foam and the solids will separate.
When the butter stops foaming and becomes clear with pieces of solid fat at the top, the Niter Kibbeh is ready.
Strain and let cool. Save the remaining spices, onions, ginger, and garlic and use to flavor your next dish.
