How to Make Ethiopian Injera- Ferment Teff Flour

Download videos:

This is how I make Injera. Make sure all of the water that goes into this is warm- not too hot not too cold. this process of fermentation takes 5 days in total but nutritiously filling!In the video I put the salt and baking powder while fermenting. I've been getting a lot of spiteful comments that this should not be done this way, so I tried putting the salt and baking powder in right before cooking and it works so much better. Thanks for the tips even though they have been quite mean. I like to put salt in things because it brings out the flavor and the baking powder helps it rise. Though, I must say this can give you a start on how it should be done, It's not perfect but it's still good.I make a Berbere spiced lentil curry to go along with this- the recipe is in the description! Enjoy.

Did I see solt added in this injera recipe or Ethiopian iinjera recipe doesn't need solt when it is made the injera is salty by it self thank you
Excellent but no salt needed
Is it okay to use white flour instead of barley flour?
Amanda M
I've tried injera from a lot of places and people. I've actually seen it seasoned before, so the salt isn't surprising. Your video is really awesome! Recipes are meant to be customized anyway, so I don't see the big deal about salt.

The somali Angelo is diff. I find Ethiopian injera too sour

I prod of you to introduced my Ethiopian cultural food injera
It’s not supposed to be a clay texture at all, it should be like pancake batter before & after the fermentation. This is a westernized recipe, fernji

salt kills the yeast. add it later.
Adding barley flour makes it gluten containing food.

Lol the comments crack me up....maybe the fella likes salt in his what!!
Kal Zclan
፣never seen it bake like this
Kathy Anderson
This is the first recipe that actually worked for me! I think the addition of the baking powder and salt is exactly what was missing from my previous attempts. My original mixture of dark teff and barley flour was so fermented that it was bubbling like a simmering stew, but when I cooked it, no \

Med Weldemariam
Trust me until about the end, I thought of you are Ethiopian. You can do and you are awesome! As an Ethiopian, I can't even do this anything close to yous. Nice and looks perfect. Enjoy the healthiest bread ever.
Mekdi Assfaw
Better if you cover the cover of the pan with something like will prevent the coming moisturized waters..for better quality of enjera

Why the barley flour? Can’t you just use more tiff flour to keep gluten free?
Rahel Tee
Awesome!!!!! It looks wonderful. What are you eating it with? Do you also make Wot? Enjoy it.
Roberta Hubert
I had a friend at work that made this bread and she would bring me some to eat with her. I am retired now and really miss that bread. I might try to make some myself now that I know how. Of course there is nothing like sharing with a good friend
Robin Nunez

Ruth Mekuria
My family thanks you dearly! The nearest ethiopian supplier of injera is in Kansas city, and you have to call wayyyy ahead of time. This will be a lifesaver on short notice💜💜💜 we dont normally use salt and baking powder, but it's still pretty good looking
Saba Asrate
Hi my brother i just saw your video. First thank you so much for sharing your amazing talent. Next trust me it is too difficult to make Ethiopian injera out side Ethiopia. I am from Ethiopia and i live USA. It really give me hard time to do it. But now you motivate me. So always keep up your outstanding skills.

mimi Desta
looks very good good job
I know its a year later but I hope someone can answer this --- what, exactly, is considered ROOM TEMPERATURE ?  I read recipes on fermentation and there is never an  exact temp given - I live in the south where room temp is usually 85 degrees, in the winter about 65.  Help!  I dont want to poison myself doing it wrong

Thanks for the heating tip, I have a similar setup to yours but realized I was using way too much heat! Keeping my element at around 360-370F works great!

most of the methods are good but \n1st since you put baking soda on the 1st day no need to put any more powder on the 3rd day\n2nd after mixing with barely no need to stay 2 days if you mix it early morning you can bake it in the evening \n3rd use warm water \n other than that you are really good I just tell you what our most mothers do in back home (Ethiopia) so you can get the real best injera (big fan lol since injera is like my once a day\

There are two more things sugar and oil. Kkkkkkkk . Injera is the gift for Ethiopian, it is not easy. No need salt, baking soda and artificial yeast. We can make yeast from any flour.
