This one a long process! Start with the tamale flour and mix well.

Then wash the corn husks. Prepare your meat - tinga pollo - or your choice.

Wrap the meat in the corn flour batter.

Place in a steaming cooker - takes about an hour.

Ready to serve - with cabbage salsa!

Start with some besan - flour of garbanzo beans. Add some salt, spices, chili powder, ajvien. Add some water and mix into a paste to create the batter.

Chop some potatoes and spinach. Add to the batter and mix well. Usually you would really deep-fry this but you can use a pan and slightly less oil too. Drop in the mix in small chunks and let them cook. Ready to server with your favorite chutneys and sauces!
