Maurtian “baguette fromage”cheese stick

imageToday I am going to share another Mauritian recipe, but this time its a snack which Ive grown up eating. Its “cheese stick” Known as “baguette fromage” in Mauritius. This snack is sold in small plastic bag in almost every shop. When I was a kid my mother didn’t like me buying that so often. Therefore, she decided To prepare it herself at home: a healthier version without any food preservatives. Ever since I moved to Europe I often prepare it. At times I use it as an appetiser with cream cheese dip or hummus.

Ingredients :
250grms all purpose flour
125grms melted butter
1/4 tsp salt
100grms grated cheddar cheese
Water to make a soft but not sticky dough
Sunflower oil for trying.

Method:

  1. Mix all the dry Ingredients together
  2. Add butter mix well
  3. Add water slowly continue mixing To form a soft dough. Do not add too much water, the dough Will become sticky.
  4. Wrap the dough in cling film and allow it to rest for 30mins
  5. After 30mins remove the plastic wrap cut the dough into two roll each one 1/4 inch thick
  6. Cut the rolled out dough into strips of 5-6 cm long
  7. Heat oil in a frying pan.
  8. Fry the cheese stick over medium heat until lightly golden brown.
  9. Drain on paper towel. Store in airtight container . Voilà so easy and yummy. Serve with any dipping sauce of your choice.
