Few years back we tried Ethiopian food in Sunnyvale. I was amazed by the food and the food reminded me of our Indian food especially the dals and dry cabbage curry. They have good variety for both vegetarians and non-vegetarians. The way they serve the food is unique. They prepare the Injera or the Ethiopian bread which is pretty much like our ragi dosa and lay it out in a plate and then place all the curries in a circular fashion with their salad in the middle. And you will be getting individual plates of Injera too.
When I wanted to try the Injera bread and any one of the curry I came across this site. They have image of how the meal is being served. Do check this site. It’s a wonderful article with all the recipes. A great read about the vegetarian meal of Ethiopia. So I took the recipes from there and modified the portion sizes. One thing I need to agree with the author. This cuisine uses a lot of turmeric and ginger-garlic paste.
So for the Injera I went with store bough teff flour. Teff is a grass species native to Ethiopia which produces tiny seeds similar to millets and quinoa but much smaller than them. It has high dietary fiber and iron. I got the teff flour from Amazon and I have included the link below the recipes. The process is pretty much like our dosa. Mix the flour with water and let it ferment and prepare like dosas.
