Anjera - Somalian Pancake-like Bread

I learned many new dishes and many new cuisines through this blogsphere, yet i didnt stop learning and will surely never stop learning to try out new dishes at home...My recent culinary trials rite now at home is African cuisine, when i was searching to try out some easy dishes from this cuisine, i was surprised to see many of Ethiopian, somalian dishes sounds similar to our Indian cuisine, yeah they prepare chapathis, samosas, tea and some more fritters similar as we do in our Indian cooking..Finally i decided to try out this somalian pancake-like bread as this bread sounds really very easy with less ingredients and they dont even need oil or butter to get cooked..I saw this somalian pancake like bread at Tammy's Space and got hooked with those easy breezy bread...Thanks to Tammy for this fabulous bread, we enjoyed with honey while little ones enjoyed with nutella spread...Am gonna prepare this bread whenever we feel like having quick dishes..


2cups Self raising flour
2+1/3cup Water
Salt

Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix without any lumps, keep aside for few minutes..Heat a non stick pan in high flame, pour a ladle of batter in the center of the span, spread the batter as we do for dosas,we need cook this anjera just one side, while the top get cook easily and look bubbly..Repeat the same process until the remaining batter get finished..

Serve hot with honey,sugar or with spicy sauce..

Love that spongy bread. Looks awesome! Yeah, there are many cuisines that we have in common because I think our forefathers migrated to that continent!

Yes I agree with you African cuisine is similar to Indian. We had a neighbor from ethiopia and whenever they cook, it used to smell similar and was wondering who's cooking indian cuisine as we were only Indians in whole condo.
Pancakes looks similar to our wheat dosa.Thanks for sharing it Priya.

Injera looks too good. Easy recipe! We recently have fallen in love with Ethiopian food. Injera tastes great with spicy curries too.
