Dabo Kolo RecipeCourse: SnackCuisine: EthiopianDifficulty: Beginner
Dabo Kolo is crispily baked with small pieces of Dabo in the form of Kollo, which makes a great snack. This recipe adds some berbere to make it spicier and give its a little bit of a kick.
2 cups wheat flour
2 tbsp berbere
¼ cup oil
½ tbsp salt
1 ½ tbsp sugar
- First, preheat the oven to 375f. Then mix the wheat flour, berbere, sugar, and salt inside a medium-sized bowl.
- Slowly pour half a cup of water while you continue mixing until the mixture thickens to a paste.
- Sprinkle some flour on a clean flat board. Then add the mixture to the board and knead it until it becomes a stiff dough.
- Add some oil to the dough and continue kneading for 5 – 10 more minutes. Then place the dough into a large bowl and cover it with a cloth to keep it moist.
- Take chunks from the dough and roll them into round long strips that are about a quarter of an inch wide.
- Cut the long strips of dough and cut them into small pieces of tiny dough using kitchen scissors.
- Place the tiny dough pieces onto a firing pan and bake them until they’re crispy for 25 – 30 minutes.
- While baking, make sure to move them around to make sure that they are backed and browned evenly.
- Remove from the pan and serve hot for best taste.
- You can make this recipe without the berbere, or make half of the portion with berbere and the other half without, which can be very aesthetically pleasing.
- If you are making a large batch of Dabo Kolo, use Injera Makers (Carpe Makers) instead of pans.
- You can store Dabo Kolo in an airtight container for longevity.
