Common paraguayan foods
Do any of you guys know a place where i can find a list of common paraguayan foods, and items, and also the stuff that they use to make their foods? Or are any of you guys paraguayan and can you tell me something about what they eat etc.etc.
Looking for good links mostly.
chipa, a kind of bread in the shape of a donut or bagle. it has flavors of cheese and anis and other spices. it is delicious! (actually, there are many kinds of chipa, including chipa guasou, chipa rica, chipa so'o, etc.)
mate or terere: a drink made from an herb. the herb is ground up, and then poured into a cup. a metal straw with a filter on the end, a bombilla, is inserted. then you pour a small amout of water over the herb and drink it through the straw- which filters out the herb, giving you only a liquid. it has an earthy taste, but after you get used to it it's amazing. terere is made with ice-cold water; mate is made with almost-boiling water. terere is more typical of paraguay, and mate is more typical of argentina (argentinians never drink it as terere.)
empanadas- you have to look these up because i'm not very good at explaining them. take a filling- meat, cheese, etc. and wrap it in a small piece of dough, then fry it. it sounds nasty, but it's delicious.
sopa paraguaya: sopa means soup. however, sopa paraguay is a kind of cornbread dish, but with a distinct flavor and texture.
kurepas: this is the guarani word for argentinians. paraguayans eat argentinians!
