Our Injera (bread) is an Ethiopian staple served with meat or vegetables. Often folded like a large napkin, it serves as a spongy bed for meat or vegetables - and it's a side dish as well.
Small pieces of Injera are broken and with the fingers of the right hand, are used to enfold the meat or vegetables - sauce and all.
