Cancha Serrana (Dehydrated Highland Corn)

Cancha Serrana, commonly referred to as cancha, is a dehydrated variety of corn that comes from the highlands of the Peruvian Andes. Cancha Serrana isn't prepared or eaten like normal corn. Instead of being boiled, it's prepared by frying in an open skillet. Sometimes pieces of pork fat are used while frying pan.

Cancha serrana is salted before serving, although some add chili or pepper to the kernels to suit their own taste. Bars often place small dishes of cancha serrana for patrons to eat with their beers.

In Peru, Canchita is the word for popcorn.
