This Dallac Bilaash (Tomato Sauce) with Anjeero recipe (fermented pancake-like bread similar to injera, the traditional bread of Ethiopia, Eritrea and Djibouti) is more about how it is assembled than a real recipe I made. Having anjeero with sauce the traditional way is not toddler friendly and having two toddlers I try not to ‘spoon feed’ them so much. I try encourage independence as much as I can hence why I decided to assemble this traditional Somali dish to make it is as toddler friendly as I could.
I got the idea one day as I watched the kids enjoy some enchiladas I made, I realized then that I could assemble some anjeero (pancake- like) and dillac bilash (tomato sauce) the same way. Bake it and add some topping just like you would with enchiladas. The kids have been having the dish that way ever since, mostly as a Sunday brunch. This dish does not need allot of instructions as its just enchiladas with a twist.

Bake it at 350 degree for about 20 minutes or until the cheese is golden brown.
Since I started to make the dalac bilash and anjeero this way I discovered how versatile it is you can use any topping you want, I have served it with jalapenos & sour cream for myself and my husband, olives, home made salsa ext.
Which traditional dish have you given a twist to make it a little ‘kid’ friendly?
