Spiced Clarified Butter and “A History of the World in 10 Dinners”

September 2, 2023

“The Spiced Clarified Butter (ንጥር ቅቤ) is one of the base recipes in the Ethiopia chapter along with Berbere Spice Mix and Injera.

“I usually buy it from local markets, but have been wanting to make it at home and was so excited to finally try!

“Niter Kebbeh (Niter Kibbeh) is an Ethiopian clarified butter infused with herbs and spices. It comes together relatively easily (the most difficult part is skimming off all the foam that forms over the top) and adds such a fantastic flavor to a variety of dishes. It is also a key ingredient in a favorite breakfast of mine, Chechebsa.”
