- In a small bowl, add ½ cup cornmeal, sugar, pepper, salt, and grated ginger. Mix well and set aside
- Pour half a cup of water into a saucepan and let it boil.
- Once done, add the cornmeal to the boiling water and stir constantly until it thickens. Scrape the dough from the ladle, cover in plastic wrap or a ladle and set aside to cool.
- Put the cornmeal in a large bowl, cover and let cool completely.
- When cool, add remaining dry cornmeal and knead until smooth.
