Ga'at is a stiff porridge eaten in Eritrea.


Ga'at is made with barley or wheat flour.[1]

To cook Ga'at, the flour and water are combined and stirred continuously with a wooden spoon. Ga'at is presented in a large mound with a hole in the center, filled with a mixture of tesmi (niter kibe)[2] and berbere. This spicy combination is tempered with yogurt which balances the flavors.[3]
