What is the traditional dish of your country and how is it made?

Uruguay and Argentina share their love for "asado" (barbecue), but I would say that the typical dish of my country is "milanesas con papas fritas" (breaded steak with fries). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milanesa
I make them differently. First I cover the slices with bread crumbs, patting them on both sides, then I dip them into the beaten eggs. Finally, before frying them, I perform the first step again.
If you have a fatty liver or your cholesterol level is high, you can bake them.
Have never tasted one? Dare, you won´t regret.

      Jul 31 2011: I´m a rice fan. Don´t know if I can get coconut milk. Coconuts are typical of tropical countries. I´ve read coconut milk is not the same as coconut water. Thought that sipping the liquid inside the coconut was its milk. Had to look up "sambal". How could I go to sleep without knowing what it consists of? ;) http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sambal
      It must be as hot as Mexican seasonings! Undoubtedly heavenly to the palate. Thank you for your contribution!

        Aug 1 2011: Coconut milk is the liquid you get when you squeeze the flesh of a dried coconut fruit.If you're interested, why don't you try the recipe I gave above.Better yet, why don't you book a flight ticket to Malaysia and I'll treat you this wonderful Malaysian delicacy myself! ;)
