Gulban: Ethiopian Last Supper

Here in Ethiopian Tselote’ Hamus (Last Supper) is being honored by preparing Gulban – a simple traditional dish made out of wheat grain and Ethiopian fava beans.

It is at this time of year that family, loved ones, neighbors and friends get together and celebrate Tselote’ Hamus by attending church service, preparing and eating Gulban.

Gulban could be eaten plain but usually seasoned with Ethiopian famous convoy Mitmita – a hot spice blend.

Gulban is a seasonal, once in a year and Ethiopian family favorite dish.

    Hi, Sara! Thanks for reminding us about Gulban. I almost forgot it. Such a delicious healthy food is eaten only once a year. Why is that, Sara? Gulban + Berbere = yaaami!

      Of course Gulban could be eaten through out the year but it is a long time tradition that preserve it to be eaten on Tselote’ Hamus or last supper hope it helps and thank you so much for stopping by and kind comment as always. Melkam Beal Tariku!
