Anjero (Traditional Somali Pancake) Recipe
I am not sure of the exact name of the traditional somali pancake as I have seen it spelled many ways: anjara, anjero and lahooh. In Infidel, it was called angello and rolled with butter and sugar. This recipe is from MySomaliFood.com. The original recipe makes 4 pancakes but I made them thinner by using less batter per pancake so I could roll them easier.
Inspired by Infidel
