Ethiopia - Ethiopian staple faces uncertainty
WASHINGTON -- Teff. Most people haven't heard of this nutrient-packed grain grown in the highlands of East Africa, but if you've ever dined in an Ethiopian restaurant, you've eaten it.
Read story from Medill and have your say
I was wondering the other day when I went to an Indian restaurant to buy plain DOSA, the staple food of southern India. Dosa to southern Indians is like Injera is to Ethios. Dosa resembles Injear except its made of rice and wheat. It is sour, thinner than Injera but crispier. A single plain Dosa is sold about $6 and its made of rice and wheat. go figure, Injear is more exotic since teff is hard to find but we are buying one Injera for about a dollar. go figure. Here is a business idea for Injera makers. Sell Dosa and you make a killing. By the way the also sell the batter (litt) here is another idea.
Woyanne might consider introducing “QlquaL” this time
If you are talking about Injera made of Teff or at that mater from any grains produced by Ethiopian farmers, the price have to/must go up.
But be sure the benefit goes to the destitute and poor farmers. The farmers need this way financial as well as technological support to improve their way of living and working.
But if the money goes to a woyne cadres or to Tigrians that are controlling/owing many big companies including importing and exporting, financial resources and preferable advantages, don’t do it.
ahhh who cares man!!!Please don’t make us bored by bringing us such a nonsense news.There are still so many other things Ethiopians should worry about.
IS this why in DC area, do they mix the flour with gas.
“Be Gaz new ende litun yemiabokut"?? every time gas price goes up, the jack up the price of Engera.
VERY GOOD NEWS.WE ARE TAIRED OF ALL THOSE “BORCHAM” Habeshas in DC.Even Ethiopian mega star Tamagn Beyene is geting biger and biger becouse of low prais of enjera in DC.hE USED TO BE SKINNE GENTILMAN.KIKIKIKI
The diaspora might dare to blame this to the Woyane too!
Another candle light vigil might be in the working….

The greedy US based CUD fans and supporters now blame Ethiopian government for stopping exporting Teff. Government must feed people at home before export is considered.
Shouldn’t Mesfin Mekonnen appeal this case as Human Right Violation to the sanators whom he can easily decive?
Let him file this it as HR 2003-2 and Wshington update.
What are they talking as if teff is the only ingredient that they have been using to make injera? Most of the people making these injera doesn’t even bother to put a label showing clearly what goes in the making of it.
There hasn’t been any research by our nutritionists to determine a very optimum mixture of these cereals going into the making of injera in such a way that it is rich in essential nutrients and very suitable to our internal and physical health. There is no doubt in my mind that it is this very elastic injera in which it is made of is not clearly labled and known, that is giving most of us this funny inflated belly that is becoming a hallmark of our identity.
Last time my parents were here in the US to visit us. As they were diabetics, I went to one of the Ethiopian stores and asked the owner if I can get Injera that is solely made of Teff. She told me the bakers of one brand of Injera put a label claiming that it is made solely of Teff. But she kept on saying that she can’t guarantee it as she doesn’t believe it is only made of Teff. I did appreciate her rectitude, but I felt bad about those who put a fraudulent label.
The bottomline is that if they are going to add a dime on the current price again, I would really find a good reason to shift to other kinds of food and make our Injera a very occasional indulgence.
There is never been any Teff in any of the enjeras in DC so I don’t understand why its is going up in price. It’s is made from ruz, wheat, buckwheat etc…
Who care´s when in Dc the injera preise is high?these people have many opportinity to feed themselves.they left injera back home alone for the better life.I heard often ppl blame injera for its mineral content and make BORCHAM.esp.womans.we must care for the growth of preise in Ethiopia because this ppl like him and they dont have another opportinity.
ppl dont be selfish.
hahaha who ever live in DC the price of injer still good compare to Toronto, Canada, u don’t believe how much cost for Ten Injera we pay $8.00 plus at this time Canadian Dollar higher than US. What I’m trying to say that …$6.0 is it’s not bad…I know its kind of expensive even in DC but way better than Canada.
I hope those cud will not THINK this something to do with Meles being the leader? hahahahahah
There is plenty of healthy food in the u.s who cares about injera it’s selfrising flour that make all Ethiopian BORCHAME .EAT SUBWAY
