Food Fare: Middle Eastern RecipesTaita

Eritrean Flatbread

In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients to form elastic dough. Allow to rest for about one hour, or until mixture rises. Take two cups of batter at a time, add 1/2 cup water and whip in a blender. Cook 1/2 cup batter per Taita in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Swirl batter to spread as thinly as possible. Do not flip. The Taita is cooked when bubbles appear on top. Stack cooked Taita in a covered dish to keep warm.


Suggestions: Eat with a pat of butter, or serve with soups or stews such as Kitcha Fit-Fit (Eritrean spiced bread with yogurt) and Kulu'wa (Eritrean beef stew in tomato sauce). Taita can also be served with Tsebhi Shiro (Eritrean Spicy Peanuts).


Note: Taita is also known as Injera.
