Brasileiríssimas/ Coxinhas

This is a single Brazilian appetizer which was accidently invented in the 19th century. As the Princess Isabel's son was crazy about drumstick and for a reason it wasn't possible to be eaten one day, the slave who used to work in the kitchen had the brilliant idea to fill some kind of pastry with chicken, not drumstick, and finally stick in a bone. The little boy did believe it was what he thought it was and did love it! From that time on coxinhas are indispensable in Brazilian snack bars, birthday parties and other celebrations... They can be filled with shrimp, cheese & ham and so on. Neither beef nor chicken ever take part in our diet, so this filling suits our preference better. Bom apetite!

Brazilian coxinhas

500ml whole milk
100g corn
2 egg yolks
3 tbsp cornstarch, dissolved in water
3 tbsp instant corn soup
1 vegetable bouillon cube
100g butter
4 tbsp corn flour
1¾ cups all-purpose flour

100g corn
1 onion, finely chopped
½ cup heavy cream
2½ tbsp all-purpose flour
200g mozzarella cheese
1 tbsp requeijão (you can add cream cheese instead)
spring onion
black pepper

lightly beaten egg
oil for frying

For the dough combine milk and corn in a blender. Take it to low heat with the remaining ingredients, apart from the all-purpose flour. When it begins to boil, turn the heat off and add the flour. Let it cool. For the filling, sauté onion, add season, corn, herbs, heavy cream and flour. Let it cool. Add cheese and requeijão. Shape the coxinhas, dip in beaten egg and then in breadcrumbs. Fry in hot oil until golden brown, put on paper towel and serve immediately.
