Injera ("Sour Dough")

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Breads

 Ingredients List

  • 1 3/4 c Unbleached white flour
  • 1/2 c Self rising flour
  • 1/4 c Whole wheat bread flour
  • 1 pk Dry yeast,about 1 Tablespoon
  • 2 1/2 c Warm water
  • 1/2 ts Baking soda
  • 1/2 ts Salt


Combine the flours and yeast in a ceramic or glass bowl. Add the warm
water and mix into a fairly thin, smooth batter. Let the mixture sit
for three full days at room temperature. Stir the mixture once a
day. It will bubble and rise.

When you are ready to make the injera, add the baking soda and salt
and let the batter sit for 10 to 15 minutes.

Heat a small, nonstick 9 inch skillet. When a drop of water bounces
on the pan's surface, take about 1/3 cup of the batter and pour it in
the skillet quickly, all at once. Swirl the pan so that the entire
bottom is evenly coated, then return to the heat.

The injera is cooked on only one side and the bottom should not
brown. When the moisture has evaporated and lots of "eyes" appear on
the surface, remove the injera. Let each injera cool and then stack
them as you go along.

If the first injera is undercooked, try using less of the mixture,
perhaps 1/4 cup, and maybe cook it just a bit longer. Be sure not to
overcook it.
Injera should be soft and pliable so that it can be rolled or folded
like a crepe.
