“Tequeños” is the name for a typical venezuelan dish. They are fried pastries with a cheese filling. They are delicious and children DO love them!!!!
RECIPE OF VENEZUELAN “TEQUEÑOS”
- 1 egg
- 5 tablespoons of butter
- 2 cups of flour
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 1 tablespoon of sugar
- 5 tablespoons of cold water
- Some slices of cheese
- Corn or sunflower oil
Place the flour in a mixing bowl shaping a volcano with a hole in the centre and put the egg and the butter in it.
Separately, mix the water with the salt and sugar.
Rub the flour, egg and butter together rapidly with the tips of your fingers until the fat is broken into little bits. Add the water little by little and form the dough into a ball.
Cut the cheese into stripes and refrigerate or freeze them.
Roll out the dough very thin and cut it into long stripes, three times wider and longer than the cheese ones. Now, roll a dough stripe around a cheese one, shaping a spiral all around. Be careful, the dough must cover the whole cheese surface to avoid it going out when frying!!!
Fry the” tequeños” in a big frying pan plenty of oil, serve immediately and. … ENJOY THEM!!!!!
