Dabo Kolo - Coffee time snack (6oz) - Two Packs


Dabo Kolo, a famous Ethiopian snack. 

Instruction for making Dabo Kolo:


  • 2 cups all purpose or wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup canola or vegetable oil or melted butter
  • 1/2 cup water, more or less (You could need more or less depending on your flour and humidity)

 Whisk together the flour, salt, sugar and cayenne pepper in a medium mixing bowl. Add the oil or butter and stir together until evenly distributed. Add water 1 Tablespoon at a time until you have a stiff dough that holds together well. 

 Knead the dough until smooth, about 5 minutes. 

 Preheat a griddle or heavy-bottomed frying pan over medium heat.

 Divide dough into golf ball sized pieces and roll each piece into long rope-like pieces that are about a 1/2″ around. Cut each dough rope into 1/2″ pieces.

 Evenly space the dough pieces on the hot pan and turn occasionally -tongs make the job very easy- until lightly browned all over.


Allow the Dabo Kolo to cool completely, if you can, and store any you don’t eat at room temperature in an airtight container.
