Mitmita is the second most popular spice of Ethiopia. If berbere is the salt of Ethiopia, Mitmita is the pepper. This is a fiery, chili-based spice blend that will bring flavor and heat to your dishes. Most commonly, it is used with raw beef dishes like kitfo It is often mixed with oil and served as a dip
with injera or even served as a condiment to sprinkle over dishes.
The red hot color is an indicator of the heat that this spice blend brings. But remember, less red could mean it’s even hotter. If it’s still fresh, a lighter red color may mean that the seeds were left in the blend, making it blazing hot.
Like all great blends, the mitmita recipes may vary based on regional or personal preference. It can sometimes be as simple as birds eye chili, mustard seed and salt. Or, more traditionally, it will also include ginger and cumin.
The Gather Mitmita Blend brings together many flavor profiles to temper the heat and add a delicious flavor to this classic Ethiopian spice blend.
