Milho frito (fried cornmeal in English) is a typical Madeira side dish made of cornmeal, finely sliced collard greens (although kale is a common substitute), water, garlic, lard and olive oil cooked slowly and cooled into forms. Similar to a very firm polenta, it is cut into cubes and fried.[1] It is usually served with espetada and other regional dishes in Madeira.
