Injera

Cooks in : 20 min Serves: 4 people

Injera is an Ethiopian Bread made with Teff. It is not a millet, but has the same nutritional properties. This wonder grain is available in Amazon. Ethiopian cuisine is very close to Indian cuisine and this bread is made with sour dough by fermenting. The bread is made in a huge pan and is soft like our Aappam! I will share the recipes of lentils and veggies which are served with Injeras separately.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup Teff grain
  • 2/3 cups Pearl Barley
  • A pinch of dry yeast
  • 1/2 tsp Salt

Directions:

  1. Powder Teff and Barley to fine separately using a blender. Reserve a tbsp of teff flour for further use.
  2. In 3.5 cups of lukewarm water add the dry yeast.
  3. Slowly add the powders and mix thoroughly without any lumps. Add flours in batches.
  4. Cover and keep aside to ferment for at least 12 hours.
  5. After 12 hours, remove the water which floats on the batter.
  6. Mix the teff flour (which was kept aside for further use) in 1/2 cup water without lump and heat it stirring continuously till it thickens. Remove.
  7. Add half a cup of water to it and mix thoroughly.
  8. Add this to the fermented batter and give a good mix. Add salt.
  9. Keep aside for an hour. The batter should be of dosa batter consistency.
  10. In a non stick dosa pan, pour the batter at one end and swirl so that it spreads evenly on the whole pan. Cover and cook on medium flame till it cooks fully. No need to cook the other side.
  11. Serve with lentils and veggies.
