I want to make cancha, the toasted peruvian corn and am trying to find a place in monmouth, ocean or even mercer county to buy the maiz chulpe, a special type of large kernel corn you use to make it. Anyone have any ideas?
Success!! We found the maiz chulpe in Trenton at Food Bazaar.
They had several brands to choose from and we got the Peru Food brand. After heating some oil we toasted it in a covered pan while shaking for about 10 minutes. (kind of like making popcorn). Drained, added some kosher salt and we had Cancha. It came out exactly like at Super Pollo II. It was easy and tasted great.
