In a corner variety store this morning I noticed what looked like big rounds of unbaked dough; I thought perhaps they were some version of pizza dough. I asked the dude behind the counter what they were - "They are injera, the staple food of Ethiopia" he replied. Since they looked raw, I asked if they had to be baked. No, it turns out that these are a type of leavened "pancake" used as both plate and utensil in Ethiopia. I bought a bag of 5 of these. Now I've looked these up at (http://www.exploratorium.edu/cooking/bread/recipe-injera.html
and find that they are made from grain I've never heard of called "teff". I've just tasted a tiny bit; they have a slightly bitter taste. I will report back when I've used them with a sauce.

Some years ago in Toronto, we went to an Ethiopian restaurant and must have had this. Our dinner was presented on a large platter that went into the center of the table - it was a giant puffy flatbread with goat curry ladled into the center. I quite liked the outside part of the bread but found the texture in the center where the stew was resting to be too much on the mushy side for my taste.

I'm really looking forward to hearing about your results, MEF.
