Kisra is a fermented flat sorghum and wheat flour bread popular in South Sudan, Sudan, and Chad. You can enjoy kisra with any stew or sauce of your choice. If you’re looking to try it, you’ll need sorghum and wheat flour, water, and oil.

Local women in Chad and South Sudan use cow’s brain as oil because it’s naturally thick and fatty. Interestingly, some women use credit cards as a spreader because they don’t have the iron-flat tool the locals use to spread the kisra in the flat pan. 

Here’s a step-by-step process of making kisra.

  1. Wait for the kisra to rise; this will take about a minute.
  2. Don’t turn the kisra to the opposite side to cook; only cook on one side.
  3. Take it off the pan using a flat tool to raise the ends.
  4. Clean the pan with a tissue, spray some oil, and repeat the process until all the kisra is done.
  5. Fold them into desirable shapes and serve with any sauce of your choice.

Tips for Making Kisra

  • Use unrefined wheat flour instead of refined flour for a healthy lifestyle
  • You can use yellow corn flour in place of sorghum flour 
  • You can also get your oil spray at Amazon or use an oil sprayer 
  • Another option is to add yogurt to the wheat and sorghum flour mixture.
