500g Sour Cassava Starch (Polvilho Azedo)
2 cups of milk
1 cup of cooking oil
2 cups of grated cheese
salt to taste
Boil the milk the oil and salt together. Pour the hot mixture it into a large bowl with the sour starch and mix with a wooden spoon. The mixture will look like a large ball of gummy paste. Let it cool and mix in the cheese and the eggs. Get your hands in there and squelch everything together into a smooth thick dough. Grab chucks of it with your fingers and roll in the palm of your hands making little balls just smaller than a golf ball.
Place the dough balls on a tray. The balls will grow around 20-30% when they cook, so leave some space between them. Place them in the top shelf of your oven at 190c and let them grow for 15 minutes. Reduce the temperature (around 160c) and cook for another 15 minutes. They should look golden brown and crackly and crusty outside. But inside they will still be nice and gooey... and cheesy!
