    breezermom's Note:

    This recipe comes from Classic International Recipes. This dish is popular in Ethiopia, and is used to scoop up stews, or "wat". The recipe information states that it is similar in taste to buttermilk pancakes, but thin, like crepes. Traditionally, injera is formed into a large circle. I posted this to serve with my Doro Wat (Ethiopian Spicy Braised Chicken) Doro Wat.

      This looks delicious but it is not injera. That looks more like an Ethiopian pancake but I can definitely tell you Injera is not like that.

      This bread is absolutely delicious! I served it along with some Indian curry dishes and it was perfect! We loved the texture and sweetness of the bread -- it was a nice contrast to the spicy dishes. I will be making this bread again very soon. Thanks for the post. Made for the Everyday Is A Holiday Tag Game, September, 2011.

      Enjoyed having this bread with Doro Wat (Ethiopian Spicy Braised Chicken) #455567. Liked the flavor of the bread with the Berbere Sauce and chicken. Also liked the bread plain. Thank you. Made for ZWT7~Emerald City Shakers.
