Hello steemian I wanted to share with you something that I made yesterday
"TEQUEÑOS" olson known as finger cheese but.
what are Tequeños?
They are a venezuelan junk food that people in Venezuela eat them as breakfast or as snacks and consist in cheese cut in the shepe of large blocks and wrapped with strips of wheat flour dough then fried.
- 500gr. Wheat flour
- 1/2 cap butter
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp sugar
- 200ml. Water
- 1 egg
- cheese (a hard cheese that doesn't melt easily)
- oil to fry
Make the dough.
Put the flour, the egg, the salt, the butter and the sugar together in a bowl.
Then add the water till have a dough.
Now dust the table with some of flour and knead the dough.
Add more flour if necessary until the dough doesn't stick in your fingers then let the dough rest for about ten minutes.
During the ten minutes you can cut the cheese into block for about 1.5cm x 1.5cm × 7cm then after the ten minutes dust the table and pud the dough then stretch the dough until it gets about 1 or 2mm thick. Then cut it into strips.
Now take the cheese block and wrappe them with the strips dough one by one.
Now you just need to put enough oil in a frying pan then fry the Tequeños until they are goulden brown then serve.
You can eat them with some tartara sauce.
