Wednesday's Wonders: DIABOLINES
DIABOLINES -- there is probably not a person from Sucre that has not purchased these little treats. These are delicious toasted cheese snacks that are famous in the region. Made from Tapioca flour, eggs, salty cheese, milk, salt and butter. They are worth a taste, albeit a small one if you want to watch your figure.
Here is a website with a recipe. Unfortunately, it is for making a HUGE batch, and unfortunately I do not have access to salty cheese, so I did not try to reduce the amount and make it myself. But if you are interested, a libra or pound in Colombia is equal to 500 grams, not the same as a US pound.
If anyone attempts this recipe, let me know how it turns out.
