Pastel de Milho
In Cape Verde, you'll find the Pastel de Milho on almost every street corner, along the road at a festival and even at the market. There are several variants and believe me they are all great! This version I learned from my mother and is my favorite. In this recipe we use spicy tuna for the filling and the orange sweet potato and banana for the dough, which are mixed with fine corn flour from Valle del Sole.
