From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Berbere (Amharic: በርበሬ berberē, Tigrinya: በርበረ berbere) is a spice mixture whose ingredients usually include chile peppers, ginger, cloves, coriander, allspice, rue berries, and ajwain (also mistakenly known as bishop's weed). It is a key ingredient in the cuisines of Ethiopia and Eritrea.

Berbere sometimes includes herbs and spices that are less well known internationally, including both cultivated plants and those that grow wild in Ethiopia, for example Aframomum corrorima (Braun) Jansen[1] and long pepper.[2]
