Ingredients edit

Procedure edit

  1. Over low heat, melt the butter in a pan. Add the onion, and cook over medium heat for 5–6 minutes or until translucent.
  2. Add the water and tomato paste, and simmer while stirring for about 2 minutes.
  3. Add the berbere, ginger, garlic, and pepper. Reduce the heat to low and continue cooking for 20–30 minutes, or until mixture thickens to a pasty consistency.
  4. Add the chicken and a splash of water. Simmer for about 45 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has thickened.
  5. Stir in the wine, cardamom, and pepper. Add the boiled eggs, and cook for another 15 minutes until the sauce is slightly reduced.
  6. Serve with injera.

Notes, tips, and variations edit

  • Berbere is very spicy, so if you are sensitive, reduce the amount in the recipe.
