Cheese and Passionfruit Tequeños (Fried Cheese Sticks)

Ingredients (15)

2 pound(s) passionfruit pulp

2 pound(s) sugar

1 cup(s) water

1 pound(s) flour

1 teaspoon(s) butter

2 teaspoon(s) salt

4 cup(s) oil

1 cup(s) water

1/2 pound(s) salty cheese

1/2 pound(s) passionfruit pulp

1 egg


Firm passionfruit jelly
1. Heat the water and sugar in a pan for a few minutes in order to create a syrup. Add the pulp and continue cooking on low heat until it changes color to a dark yellow or brown.
2. Pour into a glass jar and let cool. Cut with a wet knife and serve the portions.

1. In order to make the dough, mix the flour and salt together and make a well in the center. Add the warm water, the egg, and the melted butter. Mix well until you have a soft, elastic dough.
2. On a floured surface, roll out the dough until it is thin and cut strips 2 cm wide.
3. Cut small strips of cheese and passionfruit jelly and roll them up with the strips of dough until they are very compact. Remember to use a salty fresh cheese – it can be a hard white cheese or something similar to feta.
4. Fry the tequeños at a medium temperature for 5 minutes until the dough is golden, then take them out and set them aside.
5. Finally, serve the cheese and passionfruit tequeños as an appetizer.
