Ethiopian cuisine is not a cuisine without ingera. Injera is the Ethiopian flat bread which is made out of teff flour and it is unique to Ethiopia for its distinct taste and texture. The main ingredients used to make ingera is the tiny iron rich grain called teff, however in some areas wheat, barley and corn flour are used to combine with teff.
As with its cuisine Ethiopia lies somewhat different from the rest of the world. Vegetarian dishes are popular both by Muslims and Christians population, who respect nearly two hundreds fasting days per year. Chicken, meat, and dairy product are not allowed in fasting time by the Christians.
