    2       c            Millet flour -- buy a health

    1 1/4   c            -Lukewarm water
                         Margarine -- or oil

   “The batter for these pancakes needs to stand for
   about 4 hours (! a.m.) before you start cooking. It
   helps if  you have a flat pancake griddle, but if you
   do not then use a heavy frypan and a good ”bendy“
   utensil to turn and lift the funkaso. They are similar
   to (although smaller than) the Ethiopian injera which
   are made from a millet-relative called teff and they
   can be served with Ethiopian dishes such as the wars.”
   1. Sift flour into a bowl and gradually pour in the
   warm water, stirring and mixing well as you do so to
   make a smooth, runny paste. Set aside for 4 hours.
   2. After this, heat the margarine or oil in a shallow
   pan or griddle plate. While it is warming. beat the
   batter with a spoon. 3. When the margarine or oil is
   hot, ladle or pour enough batter in the pan to make a
   saucer-sized pancake and cook until crsip. You can
   turn it once if you like but it is not essential.
   Remove and keep warm.
   4. Cook the others in the same way and serve to
   accompany a main dish, or a snack with honey, or
   chutney.
