የእንግሊዝእኛ ቃል አላወቅም ለ አመስ ፣ አዘናሎው

generally worm up on on frying pan like frying with mild heat that is the nearest sound to it.

The word ames ames is taken from a cookbook and the sentence is:

ነጭ አዝሙዱን አመስ፣ አመስ አድርጐ ጨምር አብሮ መውቀጥ-put it together and smashed or grained it 

has it ti do with blending ?  yes  "  መቆላት is  fry this is  the nearest meaning in English.

Thanks Zewditu

The sentence which the ames ames in is as followes:

ነጭ አዝሙዱን አመስ፣ አመስ አድርጐ ጨምር አብሮ መውቀጥ

Its taken from a recipe making ነጭ ቅመም. this is ok

So በስስ make sense in not cooking the ነጭ አዝሙድ too much, before blending it into የተገረደፈ ነጭ ሽንኩርት and የደቀቀ ዝንጅብል sliced garlic and sliced ginger blend or smashed together make ነጭ  ቅመም three ingredient make a very classy spice and test wonderful specially qeql or any veg dish 

So what can አመስ  አመስ have the meaning here, and what is the noun word for it ? i do not think has noun form bet it could be mamoq/ማሞቅ on frying pan with light heat.
