Sieve the mixture of about 2cups, pour in the pot and wait for it to boil,put your atipaand wait for it to cook as you keep on stirring.  Wait for about 15min and it will be ready.
Atipa was not to be fried, instead they were to use cow milk to make it more softer and tastier. The salt they were using was called kadosero and was found at the lake.

It is very good for somebody with constipation.
