The classic comfort food extraordinair, the traditional home baked bread ሓበሻ ድፎ ዳቦ is moist, tender and hearty when done right.
Meaning - No Rush!
Because of the low gluten content of barley grains, barley flour baking demands a bit more attention than wheat flour baking.
Since this comfort food extraordinaire was steam baked wrapped in enset leaves (false banana plant) for hours at a very low heat; its rustic, savory, tangy distinctive flavor bliss was enhanced by the infused aroma of the enset leaves as well as by the mild sour nuance of the wild yeast (irsho - እርሾ).
Besides the tangy-distinctive flavor bliss of wild yeast baking, the fermentation process, which takes longer prep time than the other bread produce the content of beneficial bacteria Lactobacillus, which results in protein gluten being broken down into amino acids, which translates to easier and more pleasant digestion, sometimes even for those who are sensitive to gluten.
