I have been trying for week to get his wife recipe, He hasn't called me yet as he was going to have me speak with her about it.
So I have been resorting to combing over some recipes online. Many call for the addition of wheat as getting it to rise ant sea level can be a problem vs the mountains of Ethiopia. So I'm thinking about a yeast addition to get a starter batch going to keep in the fridge, and possibly millet, and molasses, additions, just so as to personalize the recipe. So having some time off from work I'm willing to jump in with both feet. Can anyone add to my jumping in.
Thank,
Joe

I know it is basically teff they use, yet let ferment during the night

Quoted Text
Just one cup of Teff flour, one cup of water and a pinch of salt.
  I used a stainless steal bowl, put flour in first then
slowly added the water then the salt.  Put a cover over the
bowl then set it aside for 2 days.  It was all bubbly and
smelled kinda bad, but when I cooked it, ( like a very thin
pancake ), it tasted very good.  I think if I just let it
ferment for one day it would make good tortillas

Before buying any ready-made anything, double check the ingredients! Some recipes call for wheat flour to make it easier to work with.

I have not been able to buy any of the so-called compliant breads like essene or ezekiel upon reading the labels. They all had some sort of avoids. I just did not want to risk it.

I don't think injera will work for you either as it is made from teff.
I don't know if there are any spelt breads available which might work for you.
Here is a spelt sourdough recipe, which sounds mouth watering.

Thanks! Teff is an avoid for me but I found a recipe similar to the spelt bread one with rice flour.

I am going to experiment with both spelt and rice flour. The rice flour recipe I found only involves rice flour and water to make the starter dough. I figure if I can make a fluffy starter dough and cook it in a cast iron skillet, it would be a decent substitute.

Injera rocks! I hope you can enjoy it even more since there are people like me who cannot eat real injera. L.A.'s Little Ethiopia had some great injera at the restaurants. Ahhhh the memories!

Injera is one of those avoids that I partake in when I'm in a city with a good Ethiopean Restaurant (teff is an avoid), like Boulder or San Francisco. I guess it's a good thing for me that there aren't any in Northern New Mexico (I know, I looked!).


Let go of resistance; feel appreciation for what is, and eagerness for what is coming.
