Now pour enough batter into the pan to fill entire surface and cover with the lid. It’s important to keep a lot of moisture in the pan or the Injera will crack. You don’t flip Injera, and you aren’t supposed to brown it’s underside, but some like the taste of it browned so you can overcook it a bit if you prefer. It takes about 5-7 minutes to cook Injera. You’ll see the top bubble like pancakes and start to dry out. When the top is dry, and the edges begin to curl/dry, use a rubber or wooden spatula to remove the Injera from the pan.
