Some like it hot: cook delicious spicy meals with RawSpiceBar

Wouldn't you love to have freshly ground spice kits delivered directly to your front door? This is exactly what you will get with RawSpiceBar. Every month they will send you 3 freshly ground flavor kits with a regional theme, together with recipes and spice stories. The kits include different spices every month i.e. Japanese, Jamaican, Punjabi, Malaysian etc. November was the month for Ethiopian spices, and that's what I got. Three packets...berbere, Ethiopian Mitmita, and Pumpkin Pie Spice. One more fragrant than the other.

Here is a recipe I received along with the spices. I followed the instructions with one variation...instead of beef I used chicken.

Chi non vorrebbe ricevere ogni mese direttamente a casa delle spezie da ogni parte del mondo? Potete averli con RawSpiceBar. Ogni mese vi manderanno tre bustine di spezie appena macinate, con ricette e storie delle spezie. Se vi piace la cucina speziata, RawSpiceBar fa per voi, ed è sempre una sorpresa perchè le spezie variano mensilmente. 

Ecco una ricetta che mi hanno inviato con le mie spezie. Il mio pacco era di novembre, il mese delle spezie dell'Etiopia:  Berbere, Mitmita and le spezie per la torta di zucca. Ho fatto solo una variazione, invece di manzo ho usato il pollo.

You need:  chicken, garlic, onion, tomato sauce, salt, sugar, water and the spices.

Fry the onion and garlic. 

Add the berbere and mitmika spices and sugar.

Add tomatoes and chicken.

When the chicken is cooked, shred it and put it back in the pan. Cook for about 15 minutes and serve.
