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.
