The dish is prepared by rolling a tiny bit of smooth and substantial cornmeal paste until it forms into a ball. This dish is consumed by dipping it into various stews and sauces.

It is prepared with leafy vegetables such as amaranth or spinach and grated coconut, coconut milk, peanut butter, tomatoes, and onions are later added to it.
