Teff

Teff (Eragrostis tef, Poaceae) (Amharic ጤፍ) is a species of lovegrass grown in Ethiopia. It is similar to millet in nutrition and in cooking, but the seed is smaller. It is used to make injera[?].

Teff is an important food grain in Africa. Because of its small seeds (less than 1 mm diameter), one can hold enough to sow a whole field in one hand. This property makes teff particularly suited to a seminomadic[?] lifestyle.
