Chef's Note

Cut into cubes and fried, this polenta-like mixture is a traditional side dish in Madeira, replacing fried potatoes.

- 250 g (9 oz.) cornmeal
- 2 liters (8 cups) water
- Oil for frying
- A drizzle of olive oil
- Salt
- 1 clove of garlic, minced
  1. Cook the cornmeal with the water, garlic and olive oil until it forms a thick batter.
  2. Pour into a greased flat-bottomed dish so that it forms a layer about 2.5 cm (1") thick; refrigerate.
  3. When the preparation is relatively firm, cut into cubes or like fries.
  4. Deep fry in hot oil; remove once the cubes are nicely browned; season with salt and serve hot.
