Ground Chickpea flour : High quality Ethiopian spice carefully and neatly prepared at home by Ethiopian mothers.

Ethiopian shiro, also known as shiro wot or simply shiro, is a popular and flavorful traditional dish from Ethiopia. It is mainly made from ground chickpea flour, also known as besan or garbanzo flour. Shiro is a versatile dish that can be enjoyed as a main course alongside injera (Ethiopian flatbread) or as a side dish.

To prepare shiro, the ground chickpea flour is toasted and cooked with a variety of aromatic spices, herbs, and vegetables. The exact ingredients and cooking methods may vary depending on regional preferences and personal tastes.

The process typically involves sautéing finely chopped onions, garlic, and fresh ginger in oil or clarified butter, known as niter kibbeh. Once the onions turn translucent and start to brown slightly, the ground chickpea flour is added to the pot, along with water or vegetable broth.

The mixture is stirred continuously to achieve a smooth and creamy consistency while preventing any lumps from forming. Various spices such as turmeric, paprika, cumin, cardamom, and fenugreek are commonly added to enhance the flavors. Additionally, some recipes may include tomatoes, bell peppers, and chili peppers for an extra kick of heat.

Shiro is simmered over low heat until the flavors meld together and the mixture thickens to a desirable consistency. The final dish should have a velvety texture and a rich, savory flavor profile with hints of earthiness and warmth from the spices.

In Ethiopian culture, shiro is often enjoyed during special occasions, religious festivities, or as a comforting home-cooked meal. It is highly regarded for its nutritional value, as it provides a good source of plant-based protien and fiber.
