Injera (ethiopian bread)

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
6 kilograms Flour
100 grams Yeast
2 tablespoons Sugar
1½ tablespoon Salt
\N \N Water

Somebody asked for an Injera recipe; here's one I got a few years ago from a newspaper here in Israel, and never tried it. Please let me know if it's good. The quantities in this recipe are for a medium-sized Ethiopian restaurant... you should probably reduce it a little...

Mix the yeast with water, and let stand until bubbly. Add flour, then sugar and salt. Mix and start adding water, until you get something like a pancake batter. Cover and leave for 3 days.

Oil a skillet and heat it well (it should be very hot). Pour a little water on the bottom to cool it a little, then return to heat (this is supposed to help form the pores on top). Pour a little batter, spread evenly, and cook over medium heat for 3-4 minutes. The bottom should turn brown, and the top should look like a sponge. Don't turn over.
