The Spanish and Italian influences of the past are even more evident in the cuisine of Argentine cuisine. Take the Polanda fries: a portion of Italy from Argentina.
Here’s how to make them: Heat a splash of neutral oil in a pan. Remove the garlic from its jacket and chop roughly. Leave the fruit briefly along with the dried thyme leaves in a frying pan. Then add milk and water. Bring to a boil.
When it boils, add the polenta while stirring. Follow the instructions for this on the packaging. In the meantime, reduce the heat and stir constantly.
When it is done, tap the Parmesan cheese on top. Add butter and mix. Season with salt and pepper. Place the mixture on a baking paper-lined (oven) dish. Smooth it out with a spatula. Let it cool briefly, after which it may freeze further in the refrigerator.
