Recipe by theethiopianfoodCourse: Breakfast Dish, Snacks, VegetarianCuisine: EthiopianDifficulty: Beginner

Kinche is a common but distinctively Ethiopian breakfast dish, somewhat like oatmeal. It is easy, convenient, and healthy. It is made from cracked wheat, which you can typically find in a grocery store.


  • 1 cup of cracked wheat

  • 1 cup of milk

  • 2 cups of water

  • 2 tbsp niter kibbeh (Ethiopian clarified butter)

  • 2 tsp salt


  • First, mix the milk and water in a mid-sized pot, set the heat on your oven to medium-high, and boil them together.
  • Then add the wheat to the mix, and let the mixture cook for about 20 min. – with the pot lid covered so that the wheat absorbs the moisture.
  • When you are finished cooking, transfer the Kinche to a bowl and add the niter kibbeh and salt. Then mix them all thoroughly, and serve hot in bowls.
