Bring to boil in a big pan the water, the milk, the oil and the salt.

Remove the pan from the heat and add the tapioca starch. Mix well with a wooden spoon and let it cool down.

Put the mixture in a bowl, add the eggs and knead well.

Add the grated cheese and keep kneading until the dough is smooth.

Roll 1 tablespoon of mixture into small balls. Tip: Grease your hands with oil before making the balls. Wash your hands once in a while if necessary.

Place the balls on a baking tray greased with oil or lined with baking paper.

Bake the cheese rolls in a previously pre-heated oven at 180°C for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.
