Sudanese Have a Favorite Food-Kisra Sorghum Crepes

I never thought I’d need a cow’s brain and a credit card for this lil’ ol’ Global Table Adventure of ours.

The thing is, if I were to make Kisra in the most authentic way – the South Sudanese way – that’s exactly what I’d need.

Locals would use the cow’s brain, which is naturally quite fatty, to grease the pan. I got the tip on good authority; from this amazing South Sudanese food post on Green Shakes in Sudan. There you’ll find photos of local women rubbing brain renderings on their flat griddle-like pan.

According to The World Cookbook for Students, unroasted sesame oil works fine as well… and gives the wholesome crepe a clean sort of flavor and makes them entirely vegas.

I read several passages that indicate locals spread out the kisra batter with credit cards. I had a small plastic scraper that worked just fine… but the credit card would definitely add a touch of excitement (will it or won’t it melt?!). The important thing is for it to be small and easy to move around the pan at a 30 degree pan.

I learned from first-hand experience that, if you use all Sorghum flour, the crepes crack and fall apart. Including some all-purpose flour is critical (and even makes it easier to spread on the griddle). Nonstick pans are also best for beginners.

Ingredients:

2 cups sorghum flour

1 1/2 cups water, plus 1 cup, or as needed

1 cup all purpose flour

unroasted sesame see oil or the rendered fat from cow brain

Method:

First, find a lovely vista in South Sudan from which to cook, where the green and the rock meets the blue and the cloud.

Next, mix the sorghum flour with 1 1/2 cups water and let sit overnight (at least 12 hours).

Take a long walk through that misty mountain while you wait.

The next day stir in the all purpose flour and last cup of water, to form a thin batter.

Ladle some kisra batter into a greased pan over medium heat. Immediately take a credit card or small scraper and, holding it at a 30 degree angle, spread the batter around smoothly. This can take some practice. Feel free to eat the works in progress.

When the edges begin to curl up like a smile, the kisra is done. This should only take a minute or so.

Stack them on a plate and keep warm with a towel. After they cool, they’re quite a bit more sturdy… and are less likely to break or crack… you’ll even be able to bend and curl them, like so:

Serve the wholesome, snappy kisra with any thick, hearty stew.

Enjoy the delicious, whole grain flavor with a smiling friend, old or new.
