Niter Kibbeh

Submitted by: NEED2DROP50

Introduction

Niter kibbeh is a ubiquitous cooking medium in Ethiopian cuisine. It adds an incomparable flavor to dishes. However, if you like you can substitute oil or butter or a combination of oil and butter. Clarified butter is best. NOTE: This is a seasoning..not a stand alone recipe. It is divided into other recipes. Niter kibbeh is a ubiquitous cooking medium in Ethiopian cuisine.

Ingredients

    Unsalted Butter
    Onions
    Garlic cloves
    Ginger
    Turmeric
    Cardamom seeds
    1 Cinnamon Stick
    2 Cloves
    Nutmeg
    Ground Fenugreek seeds
    Basil

Directions

In a small saucepan, gradually melt the butter and bring it to bubbling. When the top is covered with foam, add the other ingredients and reduce the heat to a simmer. Gently simmer, uncovered, on low heat. After about 45 to 60 minutes, when the surface becomes transparent and the milk solids are on the bottom, pur the liquid through cheesecloth into heat- resistant container. Discard the spices and solids. Covered tightly and stored in the refrigerator, Niter Kebbeh will keep for up to two months. Note: A good quality olive olive may be substituted for the butter.
