Shiro powder is used to make shiro wot, Ethiopia's national dish. This is the stew you will find on every dinner table in every Ethiopian household up and down the country. It is mild and has a lovely creamy texture. This Shiro blend is made with roasted Ethiopian chickpeas, yellow peas, fava beans, and a bouquet of fresh herbs and sun-dried spices. It's also called mitten shiro because it contains a little bit of berbere, giving it a lively orange colour. This dish will make your beyaynetu complete. It's easy to make and ready in no time at all. There are two shiro recipes in my ebook and a quick shiro recipe here.
Ingredients: ground Ethiopian chickpeas, yellow peas, fava beans, garlic, ginger, holy basil, thyme, rosemary, berbere, fenugreek, ajowan, and various other spices.
