I normally don't care for much cornmeal, but this recipe sounds really tasty. How do you think it would be if I made it with semolina or masa? I would rather try to use what I have lying around the house first...
Re:
I don't think it would work. I was talking about this kind of stone-ground cornmeal. http://www.flickriver.com/photos/lybouchard/3194360722/ It kind of replaces the rice but gives a unique taste. If you don't have you can use only rice, 3/4 cup of rice instead of 1/2 cup.
