What is wat, wet, wot?

Doro wat is perhaps the best known food from Ethiopia and is often referred to as that country's national dish. This recipe makes a very tasty version with a deep, rich flavour and tender chicken pieces.

 

 

Wat, wet, or wot, also known as tsebhi is an Ethiopian stew or curry which may be prepared with chicken, beef, lamb, a variety of vegetables, and spice mixtures such as BERBERE and NITER KIBBEH, a seasoned clarified butter.

Several properties distinguish wats from stews of other cultures.Perhaps the most obvious is an unusual cooking technique: the preparation of a wat begins with chopped onions slow cooked, without any fat or oil, in a dry skillet or pot until much of their moisture has been driven away. Fat (usually niter kibbeh) is then added, often in quantities that might seem excessive by modern Western standards, and the onions and other aromatics are sauteed before the addition of other ingredients.

This method causes the onions to break down and thicken the stew.
