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. It is usually served with espetada and other regional dishes in Madeira. It is usually cut into cubes and fried. It is similar to a very firm polenta.[1]
