About Mitmita Meatballs:

Be ready! This will be a different, literally “mixed” and very “hot” recipe! First of all, I would like to thank to RawSpiceBar for sending me a sample of the spice named mitmita from Ethiopia. By the way, I want to give some information about RawSpiceBar and mitmita. RawSpiceBar is an organization and every month, they bring different spice mixs together and send it to your address. And mitmita is an insanely hot spice mix. It consists of different peppers and spices. It’s so hot that your tongue will be burnt in every sense of the word even if you touch it with your tongue. So, this is a very special hot spice mix for its lovers. And this recipe will be different as I said before, since you’ll find both Turkish and Ethiopian “elements” in it. Are you ready? So, let’s go on with the recipe!
