Doro Wot/ Tsebhi Doro ( Ethiopian/ Eritrean chicken stew)By BF AdminLearn how to make Doro wot also known as Tsebhi Dorho, a special Ethiopian and Eritrean chicken stew with boiled eggs. This stew is served on special holidays and is a labour of love, so it's a special treat anytime doro wot is served. This recipe serves more as guidlines so feel free to adjust as needed. Traditionally, we don't use recipes or measuring tools to make Ethiopian/ Eritrean food but this should help anyone who loves Doro wot recreate this special dish at home! Note: This recipe calls for a few ingredients that can usually only be found at East African stores like Mekelesha spice, Korrarima spice, Tesmi (Kibbeh) and Berbere (be sure to get this spice from an East African vendor because the Berbere sold in mainstream stores doesn't compare!). You can replace the Tesmi spiced clarified butter with Ghee but it won't have same flavour as it's missing the spices).

Zambian Fish Curry with NshimaBy Clara Kapelembe BwaliZambia is blessed to have a large body of water country-wide and as a result, fish is readily available and easy to find. It’s a great protein source in Zambian households with many of us preparing it by smoking, boiling, frying, and/or drying the different types of fish available. For this particular dish, I added a twist to a local boiled fish recipe by making it a fish curry. I consider this a twist as Zambian food is not heavy on the spices — many prefer it cooked in its natural flavours. Nshima, locally known as Ubwali, is a staple in Zambia. It can be made using maize meal which is the most common, or with cassava, millet, and/or sorghum meal. Try this recipe and enjoy a taste of Zambia!
