V for Venezuela. Venezuela is one of the most urbanized countries in Latin America. The population is very diverse and the majority of the population is of a mixed heritage.

Coming to today's recipe, Cachapas, it is a traditional Venezuelan breakfast. It is a very popular street food as well. There are very many variations to it. But this version was closer to our palates and was also popular at home.

Adapted from many sources on the web
Ingredients - 

Corn Kernels (I used frozen corn and thawed) 2 cups
Corn Starch 1 Tbsp
Salt as needed
Milk 1/4 cup
Cheese 1/4 cup or more as needed
Butter / Cream Cheese as accompaniment


Method Of Preparation -

Blend the thawed corn along with cornstarch, salt and milk to make a coarse batter. It should be slightly thicker than pancake batter consistency.

Heat a griddle/tawa. Pour a ladle full batter and spread like an Uthappam.

Cook on a low flame until the underside is cooked.

Gently flip onto the other side and cook for a couple minutes.

Flip again and sprinkle cheese, fold and remove onto a serving plate.

Continue with the rest of the batter.

Serve these Cachapas warm with butter or cream cheese for a filling breakfast.
