Directions

  1. The first step is to dissolve the sugar and salt in the water after which the cassava starch and maize flour are added, followed by the cheese. After this is thoroughly mixed, the eggs and butter are added and the mix kneaded to a smooth dough. The dough is then formed into small round balls and baked in a very hot oven. In almost all cases traditional wood-fired, brick-built, dome ovens are used throughout the selva, although in some of the larger towns electric ovens may be used.
