I did it. Followed my mom’s recipe step-by-step. And managed to do it all without burning anything! 🙂
Tomorrow I will be delivering to the rest of the family. The most important judgement will be from my mother. I don’t know if I can live up to her standards, but I think I came pretty close, and I’m happy. Below, pics of the process.
A LOT OF INGREDIENTS!
A full stove. All ingredients are cooked separately.
Lentils, red beans, corn, cabbage, squash, rice…
White onions and garlic sauteed in achiote (annato)
Salt cod, soaked overnight in water, and then cooked in milk. Smelly!
Sauce: onions, corn, pumpkin, peanut paste. Cheese and lupin beans added after everything has been mixed together.
Cod is fried and served as garnish.
Pumpkin fritters. Also served as garnish,
At last. All that work for a bowl of delicious fanesca. Served with pumpkin fritters, fried cod, red pepper, banana known as maqueño, and parsely. YUMMY!
