This month, to celebrate Chilean Independence month, the BRBC challenge was to cook with Chilean native ingredients, and I chose: toasted flour, wheat flour made with roasted grains. The word Ulpo comes from the Quechua, an indigenous language of the northern part of Chile, and mean dry flour. Other uses are toasted flour mixed with wine knows as Chupilca or sprinkled over a freshly cut watermelon.
