Note from Ricardo

Berbere spice is an Ethiopian spice blend that typically includes garlic, chili pepper, cinnamon, cloves and cardamom. A ready-made spice mix can be found in many grocery stores.

Korean chili powder can be replaced with a mixture of 1 tbsp of sweet paprika and ½ tsp red pepper flakes.
