Enkutatash Recipe: Dabo Kolo

By
Dabo Kolo/ (c) Amanda Mouttaki

Looking for a fun way to celebrate Ethiopian New Year with your family?  These snacks are great for lunchboxes, after school snacks or appetizer nibbles at your next dinner party. You can easily adjust the spice level to make them more or less but I lean towards more spicy!

Ingredients:
1 c whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tablespoons berberé
1/2 tablespoon sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 c water, room temperature
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Directions
1.  Preheat oven to 375° F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2.  In a large bowl add the flour, berberé, sugar, salt and melted butter. Mix with your hands, slowly adding water to create a ball of stiff dough.  Continue to knead the mixture for several minutes until smooth.

3. Cover with a towel and allow to rest 5-10 minutes.

4. Divide the dough into 6 pieces and roll each into a long rope.  Cut each rope with a knife into pieces about 1/2 inch thick.

5. Arrange in a single layer on the baking sheet.  Bake for 25 minutes or until crunchy.  Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely. They can be stored at room temperature in an air-tight container.

    How much flour? It’s not on the list of ingredients.
