Snacks

Typical Ethiopian snacks are dabo kolo (small pieces of baked bread that are similar to pretzels) or kolo (roasted barley sometimes mixed with other local grains).

Kolo is often sold by kiosks and street venders wrapped in a paper cone. Snacking on popcorn is also common. Shimbra also serves as snacks like Kolo (mix of roasted barely, chickpea, nuts, and suf) or Nifro (simply mix of cooked grains like wheat barriers, chickpeas or barley). Samboosa or samosa are very popular in Ethiopia. Usually a little larger than the most common samosa and are usually meat or a vegetable lentil variety.
