Injera (Ethiopian Sour Flatbread)

Injera is a spongy Ethiopian flatbread and an integral part of life for the locals. The bread is made from teff, the tiniest grain in the world, also considered a super grain due to its high nutritious properties. 

This flatbread is served for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Its flavor is tart and quite similar to sourdough bread. 

The dough is left for three days to ferment and is then shaped into a large, pancake-like disk.

 

 

RECIPE INGREDIENTS

Teff flour

Active yeast

Baking soda

Water (warm)

Salt
