Yes I did use all of the water. The corn flour + 400 ml of boiling water, which barely hydrated the corn flour but I really kneaded it well. Then the 300 ml warm water but the dough was very dry. Even with very little AP flour added. I will try again and add more water. Thank you for your quick reply, I just wanted to make sure that the quantities were all correct. I got very excited to see this broa recipe with rye flour! I remember this tangyer, darker broa from my youth!

May I check the boiling and warm water quantities with you? I followed the recipe but the dough turned out very very dry - I only added 1/3rd of the all purpose flour. Thanks in advance for your reply back.

Pauline, did you use all the water? You should keep adding until you have the right consistency, sometimes a little more water is needed as different brands of corn, rye and all-purpose flour react differently.
