Normaly this recipe is eaten with Injera
Ingredients for this recipe:
200 gr. teff, ground fine (or 50gr. maize and 150 gr. self-raising flour)
1 teaspoon salt Sunflower or other vegetable oil
Mix ground teff with 250 cc lukewarm water and let stand in a bowl covered with a dish towel, at room temperature, until it bubbles and has turned sour.
This may take as long as 3 days.
The fermenting mixture should be the basis of the pancake.
Add 125 cc soda-water and stir in salt.
Lightly oil a large frying-pan.
Heat over medium heat.
Then proceed as you would with a normal pancake or crepe.
Injera can be thick so you should use a bit more batter than you would for crepes.
Cook briefly in the covered frying-pan, until holes form in the injera and the edges lift from the pan.
Put the injera on a plate and let cool.
