Garlic Injera Ethiopian Flat Bread

Updated on August 2, 2012


3 stars from 1 rating of Garlic Injera

Cook Time

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 20 min
Ready in: 25 min
Yields: Serves Four


  • 2 cups unbleached flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 brown egg
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 pinch of fresh cracked pepper
  • 4 cloves of minced garlic
  1. Mix the dry ingredients.
  2. Add the water, egg and 4 cloves of minced garlic.
  3. Mix all of the ingredients together thoroughly. The mixture should be very thin, much like a crepe batter.
  4. Let the batter relax for a minute while you heat up a small skillet. Once the skillet is hot, you can add a tiny bit of olive oil or coconut oil to the pan. I normally skip that and the batter doesn't stick, so it's not mandatory.
  5. Pour 1/4 cup of batter into the center of the pan. Shift and rotate the pan, to evenly distribute the batter.
  6. The batter will cook very quickly. Once the batter is bubbly and looks firm, flip it. Each flat bread takes roughly a minute to cook completely on both sides.
  7. Stack the flat bread on a pretty plate and serve.

      I'm so glad other people love Ethiopian cuisine as much as I do! I'll have more recipes up soon, including some more Ethiopian ones. =)

      I love Ethiopian food, and especially injera. I've never tried making injera on my own... but now I will! Thanks for the recipe!
