One of the most well know national dishes of Ethiopia, injera is a pancake like flatbread made from a special type of flour. The flour is mixed with water and ferments for a couple of days. After it ferments, the dough is fried into large flat discs. Serving utensils are not common in the Ethiopian culture. Instead meats, stews, salads, and everything else is scooped onto torn pieces of injera which acts as both plate and fork.
