A quick guide to Ethiopian cuisine

Ethiopian food is one of my all-time favorite cuisines due to the striking similarity it has to one of my other favorite cuisine – Indian food. But on the other hand, it has enough uniqueness about the wonderful cuisine to surprise me on each new dish I try.

The cuisine is often dominated by fresh veggies and spicy meat dishes with a lot of flavors and a unique saltiness to it. The most popular elements are a traditional sourdough flatbread (injera) topped with a thick stew (wot) and many other flavourful delicacies.
