Well, Angu is synonymous with Brazil, being a food with Northeastern flavor and tradition.

The cream, which is yellowish due to its composition, is a legitimate gastronomic simplicity but has an incredible flavor that all types of palates like.

Angu is an icon of Bahian and Minas Gerais cuisine, being an incredible accompaniment to the most varied types of dishes.

The name angu has African origins, however, the composition of the dish obtained Portuguese and Italian influence even before arriving in Brazilian lands.

Previously called “slave food”, the dish started to have versions prepared with the use of corn or manioc flour, becoming the most traditional one made with cornmeal, which also accompanies cow offal or pork.

There are two different versions of Angu: the Minas recipe and the Bahian recipe, which is what we are going to learn today.

They are different, the Minas Gerais version being firmer and prepared only with water and cornmeal. The Bahian recipe is a softer dish and is served with the kids as a side dish.
