The corn flour is added to boiling water, while kneading it with a wooden baton until it becomes a smooth doughy staple, that is served as part of a meal with various soups and sauces. Some of these include Miyan Karkashi soup among others. Customarily, when this kind of stiff dough or porridge is served, a small bowl of water is provided for individuals to wash hands before and after eating.
