Injera (Ethiopian Flat Bread)

Injera (Ethiopian Flat Bread) created by DianaEatingRichly

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 Recipe #455567 Doro Wat.

ingredients

directions

  • Stir together the whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, brown sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda.
  • Combine the eggs, buttermilk, and the 1 tbsp cooking oil; add all at once to the flour mixture, stirring until smooth.
  • Pour 2 tbsp of the batter into a hot, lightly greased 6 inch heavy skillet over medium heat; lift and quickly rotate the pan so that the batter covers the bottom of the skillet. Return the skillet to medium heat. Cook about 1 minute or till light brown on the bottom.
  • Invert the bread onto paper toweling. (If necessary, loosen the bread with a small spatula.).
  • Repeat with the remaining batter. Roll up jelly-roll style and serve warm.

    This is emphatically NOT injera. This is halfway between a crepe and a pancake... but it is not injera. An analogy: this is like boiling down some tomatoes and telling people it’s applesauce because it comes from a red fruit. Nuh uh. An extra star because it was tasty... as a thin pancake.

    This is not the recipe for injera. The grain used to make this recipe is not even Teff. I am sure this is a great recipe, it’s just not injera.
