Spread 1/2 tsp. OIL over the pan with a brush.
Fill a measuring cup (with spout) or a large cream pitcher with batter.
Pour the mixture on the hot pan or griddle in a thin stream starting from the outside and going in circle to the center from left to right. As soon as it bubbles uniformly all over remove from heat. Pancakes should be 9 inches in diameter.
Arrange the five pancakes overlapping each other so as to completely cover a fifteen-inch tray, thus forming injera.
