Ingredients Required to Make YeBula Atmit

  • 2 cups bula powder

How to Make YeBula Atmit (Step-by-Step Tutorial)

  1. In a medium pot, whisk the bula powder into the milk until it forms a smooth mixture.
  2. Place the pot over low heat and stir in the sugar. Cook the mixture until it reaches a thickness similar to that of a smoothie, stirring occasionally to prevent lumps from forming.
  3. Once the porridge has thickened, stir in the kibe (clarified butter). Continue to cook over low heat, stirring constantly, for an additional 5 minutes to warm through and allow the flavors to combine.
  4. Once the bula porridge is heated through and the flavors are well incorporated, remove the pot from the heat.
  5. Serve the Ethiopian bula porridge immediately, either on its own or with additional toppings if desired.
