Niter kibbeh, or niter qibe (Ge'ez ንጥር ቅቤ niṭer ḳibē), also called tesmi (in Tigrinya), is a seasoned clarified butter used in Ethiopian cooking. Its preparation is similar to that of ghee, but niter kebbeh is simmered with spices such as cumin, coriander, turmeric, cardamom, cinnamon, or nutmeg before straining. This imparts a distinct spicy aroma to it.

In Somaliland it is known as Subag Soomaali and is extensively produced and used in cooking in households and to preserve meats in nomadic culture. The ingredients are a bit different as Somalis use as well as fresh butter, garlic, cardomom and cloves.
