      Title: (injera) ethiopian flat bread
 Categories: None
      Yield: 15 -20
      3 c  Self-rising flour; (750 ml)
    1/4 c  Whole wheat flour; (125 ml)
    1/2 c  Teff flour; (from African
           -grocery or health food
    1/2 c  Cornmeal or masa harina;
           -(125 ml)
      1 tb Active dry yeast; (one
           -package) (15 ml)
  3 1/2 c  Warm water; (875 ml)
  15-20 12-inch Injera
  In a large bowl, mix:
  Let set in large bowl, covered, an hour or longer, until batter rises
  and becomes stretchy. It can sit as long as 3-6 hours.
  When ready, stir batter if liquid has settled on bottom. Whip in
  blender, 2 cups of batter at a time, thinning it with 1/2 - 3/4 cup
  water. Batter will be quite thin.
  Cook in non-stick frypan WITHOUT OIL over medium or medium-high heat.
  Use 1/2 cup batter per injera for a 12-inch pan or 1/3 cup batter for
  a 10-inch pan. Pour batter in heated pan and quickly swirl pan to
  spread batter as thin as possible.
  Batter should be no thicker than 1/8-inch. Do not turn over. Injera
  does not easily stick or burn. It is cooked through when bubbles
  appear all over the top.
  Finished injera will be thicker than a crepe, but thinner than a
  Lay each injera on a clean towel for a minute or two, then stack in
  covered dish to keep warm.
  To serve, overlap a few injera on a platter and place stews on top (
  most kinds of spicy bean or veggie stews/curries would be great with
  this. For Ethiopian food, the spicier the better).
  Or lay one injera on each dinner plate, and ladle stew servings on
  top. Give each person three or more injera, rolled up or folded in
  quarters, to use for scooping up the stews.
  If you make 15 12-inch injeras, each would be about 120 calories, 3%
