Type Spices
Place of origin Ethiopia
Main ingredients Piri piri, cardamom, cloves, salt

Mitmita (, ) is a powdered seasoning mix used in Ethiopian and Eritrean cuisine. It is orange-red in color and contains ground African bird's eye chili peppers, cardamom seed, cloves, and salt.[1] It occasionally has other spices including cinnamon, cumin, and ginger.

The mixture is used to season the raw beef dish kitfo and may also be sprinkled on ful medames (fava beans). In addition, mitmita may be presented as a condiment and sprinkled on other delicacies or spooned onto a piece of injera, so that morsels may be lightly dipped into it.
