Sorullitos De Maiz

1¼ cups corn meal
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. sugar
2 cups water
1 cup shredded cheese (in Puerto Rico they use Queso de Bola) -

In a medium saucepan boil the water. Add salt, sugar, and corn meal and stir until it forms a soft ball that separates from the sides of the pot. Remove from heat. Add the cheese and stir. Cover with clean dishcloth and wait 5 minutes or so. Then form the sorullitos by scoping about a heaping teaspoon, forming a ball first, then rolling on your hand into a sorullito. Fry in plenty of oil.

This makes a great appetizer and also goes great with soup.
