About Pão de Queijo

The discovery of Pão de Queijo in Brazil during the seventeenth century resulted from the unavailability of wheat in the region. To meet their nutritional demand, people began using starch derived from the cassava tubes to create bread. According to Wikipedia, the method was shown to them by Tupiniquin indigenous groups. Later, the recipe was modified with the addition of grated hard cheese during the nineteenth century.

Pão de Queijo: Main ingredient

Brazilian snack's main ingredients are sweet (or sour) cassava flour, oil, eggs, milk, salt, cheese (Minas, Canastra, Parmesan), and water. People can also use small amounts of margarine or butter.

People can switch to different types of cheese based on this ingredient's availability. The most commonly used cheese for preparing Pão de Queijo is mozzarella, parmesan, and minas or canasta cheese.
