Seitan Wat

This is a vegan version of Doro Wat, an Ethiopian chicken stew. It is really easy to make and is quite tasty. You can make it as hot or as mild as you want by how much berbere you put in.


INGREDIENTS
- 2 large onions, diced
- 1/4 cup niter kebbeh
- berbere to taste (start with a little and add more)
- 1 tsp salt
- 4 cups cubed chicken seitan
- 1 tomato, finely diced
- 3/4 cup water
- 1 tbsp flour
- 1 tbsp water

METHOD
1. Fry onions in a dry pan over medium heat, stirring constantly, until onions are a deep golden brown.
2. Add in niter kebbeh, berbere, salt, and blend well. Add in seitan and fry for 5 mins.
3. Add in tomato and water and simmer, uncovered, for 20 mins. If stew is too thin, mix flour into water and add into stew. Serve with injera bread.
