Overdue Injera


Well,i did it. I went to a friend's cottage on the weekend and made injera. I took the necessary ingredients with me, but i had a fun afternoon making it. And was pretty successful, if i say so myself. The only thing was that it didn't taste 'exactly' like the injera i get at the Ethiopian recipes i go to. But, it looked and felt like it, so i'm happy.

I did use a non-stick pan without oil and it really worked. Following Michelle's advice, i looked for those bubbles and pulled it out. I didn't realize until i re-read the directions that we don't have to flip the bread over so i'm glad i saw that in the end. It was fun to swirl it around in the pan to make it evenly distributed.

Thanks for everyone that made or attempted to make this dish. I'm so happy that i made injera! And, i can't believe that fava beans aren't available everywhere! I'm in for the muffins, but i too would love to make a recipe that is gluten-free to make sure we can all try our recipes.

That's a well-stocked cottage kitchen! It is impressive to see that it's possible to make injera ourselves. Empowering, actually.

I wonder what the restaurants do differently? And which do you like in Toronto? The only Ethiopian I've eaten in Toronto so far is Ethiopian House on Irwin. I'm going to Ambsale on Danforth this weekend.

BTW: anyone want to start thinking about a new recipe to post on Friday?

Yay! How did you get it to work on the non-stick pan without oil? You either have a better pan or you are a miracle, you!

ps: good idea, Carla!

So quiet over here. How can I type out the sound of crickets chirping? tee hee. I'll hit the Dufferin Grove market tonight and hopefully make the muffins with Ontario zuchinni.

There were some new names making comments lately, maybe one of them would like to suggest the next recipe?

re: what carla said. there seems to be a lot of new people here, though many of them don't have blogger accounts nor are signed up...i wonder why? does everyone know that you can go to the first post and check out how to sign up (emailing carla, right?) just curious...

anyway, i kinda get the sense that people want to suggest things, but then when someone says, "what should we make?" it's the same types who always answer!

so in response to mishka: either sound fun!

I vote for pierogies, too. Carb-olicious!
