Shiro is a homogeneous stew whose primary ingredient is powdered chickpeas or broad bean meal. It is often prepared with the addition of minced onions, garlic and, depending upon regional variation, ground ginger or chopped tomatoes and chili-peppers. Shiro is served atop injera or kitcha (a sugarless pancake kind of bread). However, it can be cooked in shredded taita and eaten with a spoon, this version would be called shiro fit-fit.
