Injera: Preheat large skillet over medium heat. Mix all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder and salt together. Stir in club soda until batter is smooth. Wipe skillet with small amount of oil. Ladle half a cup of batter onto skillet; spread to make large crepe. Let bake until all bubbles on top burst and dry out—about 2 minutes. Flip injera and cook another minute. Repeat until all batter has been used, being sure to wipe skillet clean with oiled paper each time.


Atkilt Wat: Heat olive oil in medium pot over medium heat. Cook carrots and onion about 5 minutes. Stir in salt, pepper, cumin, turmeric and cabbage; cook 10 minutes. Add potatoes. Cover and reduce heat to medium-low; cook until potatoes are soft.
