    Add all the ingredients in for the masa (dough) to a bowl and mix together.

  • STEP THREE

    On a medium-low heat saute the scallions, onion, and tomato for 10 minutes. Add the salt, paprika, turmeric, and pepper while sauteing.

  • STEP FOUR

    Time for the Tamale. Start off with heating up the La Fe banana leaves on the stove until soft. Once soft add in the Masa, raw peas, chicken or jackfruit, raw carrot, raw potato, and the hogao in the center of the leaf. Fold the leaf in on all sides, roll in extra leaf and tie tamale up with kitchen twine.

  • STEP SIX

    Remove the tamales from the steamer and let stand for 5 minutes. Once severed open up the leaf to eat. Enjoy!
