To celebrate Chilean Independence month, the BRBC challenge was to cook with Chilean native ingredients, and I chose: Harina Tostada (toasted flour) wheat flour made with roasted grains to make Chilean Ulpo.
The word Ulpo comes from the Quechua, an indigenous language of the northern part of Chile and many other places in South America pre-arrival of the Spaniards. Ulpo means dry flour in Quechua.
Other uses are toasted flour in Chile mixed with wine, knows as Chupilca, or sprinkled over a freshly cut watermelon.
In the USA, you can get Harina Tostada in TuChileAqui.com
