Kategna Recipe

If you have some extra injera on hand, use it to make this tasty treat. Learn how to make Kategna by using this simple recipe from Ethiopian Food Guide. Here you will learn about all the ingredients you will need to make this traditional Ethiopian dish with all the necessary directions.


  • 1 piece of injera
  • 2 or 3 tablespoons of niter kibbeh
  • ½ to ¾ teaspoon of berbere, or more to taste


Divide the injera in half or into quarters, and in a skillet, heat the pieces until they become just a little crispy (just a little!). Turn them frequently as you heat them.

Melt the Niter Kibbeh in a microwave, then add the berbere and blend the ingredients well. When the injera is ready, spread the spiced Niter Kibbeh onto the bubbly side of the injera like you’re buttering bread. This dish is excellent before a meal with an apéritif of tej, or you can just enjoy it as a snack any time.
