    can someone PLEASE tell me how to make the manioc pancakes i had every morning. We would take a pancake and put butter and cheese on it and toast it like a quesadilla. How do i make the pancake?
    thanks!

    You just use manioc flour instead of wheat flour in the mix. I personally find that manioc flour as used to sprinkle over feijoada is pretty disgusting

    [/QUOTE] You have to buy a special flour to make manioc pancakes (tapioca). It is not wheat flour. You can buy it from any Casa do Norte, ask for goma paratapioca. Evenly, put some in a hot frying pan, the starch “glues” together the flour, then turn the pancake over and put it in a plate and eat it with cheese or freshly grated coconut or just butter.. Delicious with a fresh brewed coffee. Roshar2009-03-20 17:11:59

    So I don’t need to add water first? Just the flour?

    I was giving a recipe with povilho azedo…still cant remember how to make it! I think they just added water to the povilho and sprinkled it over a pan via a sift or something.

[/QUOTE] You are right, it is polvilho azedo, but the water is only to make the flour damp, and make the starch “work”; passe it then, through a sift into a bowl. Put the mixture using a spoon in a hot frying pan, (lets say 3 or 4 spoonfull, depending of the size of th spoon and/or the pan) in the centre of the frying pan and spread evenly sideways to flatten the pancake. When one side is done (dry) turn it over.I was not sure about how to make tapioca then I asked my mum.Let me know how you got on.Roshar2009-03-23 07:23:19

    Ok, the way I saw it done was just as you mentioned but they pushed it through a sieve directly onto the hot frying pan. I will try it this week and give some feedback!
    One questions though, the mixture just needs to be “damp and powdery” and not “doughy and fluid” right?

    Yes, the mixture has to be damp and powdery. If you saw the pancake been sifted straight into the pan, it is better you make that way, so you will remember how. Good luck.

    I know this is an older post, but there’s a demo on youtube… I managed to make some, and I didn’t have a clue as to what I was doing!
