Anyone invited to a Sudanese meal is likely to be faced with kisra. This is the unleavened bread made from sorghum.It is similar to the Ethiopian injera, but the latter is thicker and more spongy. Kisra is thicker than a wafer and larger, though is served folded for the diner to break pieces off, or else it is put in a deep bowl and certain dishes are poured onto it [eg. um rugaiga, molochiya mafrooka, or bamia mafrooka].
At weddings, during Ramadan and sometimes for breakfast another sorghum dish can be served. It resembles a porridge coloured jelly, but is actually delicious with a mince based sauce.
Kisra is made from fermented sorghum, and cooked on an iron griddle over a wood fire. Usually one person is responsible for making a day's supply. Nowadays, however, kisra can be bought from women , who sit in the street with a stall.
