Mitmita (Amharic: ሚጥሚጣ), is a spicy powdered seasoning used in the cuisine of Ethiopia. It is orange-red in color and contains ground African birdseye chili peppers, cardamom seed, cloves and salt. It occasionally has other spices including, but not limited to, cinnamon, cumin and ginger.
The mixture is used to season the raw beef dish kitfo, and may also be sprinkled on ful (fava beans). In addition, mitmita may be presented as a condiment and sprinkled on other foods or spooned onto a piece of injera, so food can be lightly dipped into it.
