Dabo Kolo (Crunchy Spice Bites)
flour, unbleached all-purpose
Preheat oven to 350℉ (180℃).
In a bowl combine flour, berbere, sugar and salt.
Gradually mix in about ⅔ cup of water until a thick paste is formed.
Dump the mixture onto a floured board and knead until you have a stiff dough.
Make a well in the centre of the dough ball and pour in the oil.
Fold the dough over the oil and knead for another 5 minutes.
Cover the dough with a cloth to keep it moist.
Break off chunks to roll into ¼ inch round strips.
Cut these strips into ½ inch long pieces, preferably using scissors so that the ends will be pinched.
Bake on a flat sheet for 20 to 30 minutes until crisp.
Stir 2 or 3 times to ensure even browning.
When cool, store in an airtight container.
