Recently, I learnt, from my son, about this amazing bread he ate , made by his Brazilian friend. He was raving so much about this bread, called Pao de Queijo, that I absolutely wanted to find out how it’s made and what it looks like. After some research, I came across this recipe and tried it out immediately. It turned out to be fantastic and tasted awesome. The best part about this recipe is that it is very easy to make and also a very quick process. It’s a must try and would love to have you all comment on it .


1/2 cup olive oil

1/3 cup water

1/3 cup milk

1 tsp salt

2 cups tapioca flour

2 tsp minced garlic

2/3 cup mozzarella cheese

2 eggs beaten


Preheat the oven to 190 deg centigrade. In a deep pan, add the olive oil, water, milk, and salt. Bring it to a boil on high heat and remove immediately from the heat. Stir in the tapioca flour and garlic, until it turns into a smooth dough. Keep it aside to cool for about 15 mins. Stir in the cheese and egg into this dough and combine till well mixed. Drop small sized balls onto parchment paper and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes or till they are golden brown on the top. Enjoy hot or cold .
