Taken from Vegetarian Times (I think) Cut apart the chicken (to avoid small bones, do not use backs or necks); remove skin and make slits in the meat. If youre using tofu, cut it into 2-inch cubes, then boil the cubes in a covered pot for 5 to 10 minutes until they puff up and become spongy; this enables the tofu to absorb the sauce. Rinse in cold water and drain. Heat a few tablespoons of olive oil in a Dutch oven or skillet. Add butter or margarine, melt, then add the onions. Cook over medium heat until somewhat soft, then add garlic. When onions are translucent, stir in tomato paste and about 1/4 cup of water. Strain the berbere and add it to the mixture. Add salt. Put the chicken or tofu in the pot, coat with the sauce, and cover. Simmer, stirring often to make sure the sauce doesnt stick or burn; add water as necessary to keep the sauce the consistency of thick ketchup. If youre using eggs (traditional in doro wat), add them whole to the mixture after 30 minutes. Simmer on the stove top about one hour. The sauce should be a rich, deep red. When the dish is done, hold in a warm oven until ready to serve. Posted to Kitmailbox by WINCATS@aol.com on Apr 29, 1997
