Dabo Kolo (Crunchy Spice Bites)
Crispy snacks made with Berbere.
Unbleached white flour
Ethiopian Spice Mix**
Preheat oven to 350˚F.
In a bowl combine flour, berbere, sugar & salt. Gradually mix in about 2/3 c of water until a thick paste is formed.
Dump the mixture onto a floured board & knead until you have a stiff dough.
Make a well in the centre of the dough ball & pour in the oil. Fold the dough over the oil & knead for another 5 minutes.
Cover the dough with a cloth to keep it moist.
Break off chunks to roll into 1/4-inch round strips. Cut these strips into 1/2-inch long pieces, preferably using scissors so that the ends will be pinched.
Bake on a flat sheet for 20 to 30 minutes until crisp. Stir 2 or 3 times to ensure even browning.
When cool, store in an airtight container.
