Ethiopian Berbere Spice Mix

This will be updated until I finally make a mix that I like… I’m on an Ethiopian food adventure right now, so I figured it was necessary to figure out how to make my own berbere spice mix! It’s a bit difficult to obtain here in Mexico (especially in larger quantities), so making my own is the best option.

Ethiopian Berbere Spice Mix


  • 2 tbsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground fenugreek
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander seed
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp clove


  1. Combine all spices using a whisk. Store in a cool, dry place in a sealed container.
