Injera (Ethiopian Flat bread)


Unfortunately, it is hard to make the perfect Injera at the first attempt.There are a number of different recipes to make injera and none have a sold formula.  A number of factors can alter the quality of injera such as the temperature of the grill, the type of grill (mitad), the temperature of the dough during fermentation, quality of the flour, ways of mixing the dough...
You may try our recipe, but if the quality of injera is poor, you may need to alter and experiment different ways considering the above factors. Good Luck!
