The Centre is also have Ethiopian national dishes such as "Injera" (a pancake-like bread) and a traditional spicy stew called "wot", which many a diplomat and tourist had enjoyed at one time or another, and will be introduced to the Indians (who have similar spiced dishes) and anyone else who is interested in experiencing its unique taste.

The other room in the center will present an exhibition for ‘injera’ and ‘wot,’ the national food of Ethiopia to offer an opportunity for people seeking Ethiopian food.


Doro wat is perhaps the best known food from Ethiopia and is often referred to as that country's national dish. This recipe makes a very tasty version with a deep, rich flavor and tender chicken pieces. Making your own homemade berber is not difficult and is essential to give the dish the proper flavor.


Injera is the Ethiopian staple bread (staple = a principal dietary item, such as flour, rice, or corn) its thin crepe like flat bread that the dishes such as Wots, Tibs and Fitfit are served on. To eat the dishes pieces of injera are torn off and used to scoop up mouthful.
