What is Injera?

Before we dive into the recipe, let’s talk about the star ingredient: injera. Injera is a sourdough flatbread that’s a staple in Ethiopian and Eritrean cuisine. It’s traditionally made from teff flour, a grain native to Ethiopia, which gives it a slightly tangy flavor and sponge-like texture.

Injera is typically served with various stews and salads, but we’re giving it a modern twist by turning it into crispy, addictive chips.

Substitutions

If you can’t find injera at your local grocery store or international market, don’t worry! You can substitute it with other types of flatbread like pita or naan. The taste will be slightly different, but still delicious.
