This is the staple bread of Ethiopia. It is traditionally made with teff flour. Regular millet flour from a health food store will work fine. Use this bread to sop up the flavors of spicy stews.

  • Stir the batter well and mix in the baking soda.

  • Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Pour about 1/3 cup of the batter into the pan in a spiral pattern to cover the bottom of the pan evenly. Tilt the pan to quickly even out the batter. Cover the pan and allow to cook for about 1 minute. The bread should not brown but rather rise slightly and very easy to remove. It is cooked only on one side. This top should be slightly moist. Remove to a platter and cool. Stack the cooked breads on a plate.
