In Panamanian cuisine, Tamal de Olla (pronounced "t'mall de Oya")[needs IPA] which is Spanish for "Tamale of the Pot/Pan," is best described as Panamanian-style tamale that fills the baking pan in which it is cooked, and is not wrapped in a banana or plantain leaf. The ingredients include pork or chicken cooked with corn-stuffed cornmeal (with "maiz nuevo"), vegetables (onion, tomato, and bell pepper), olives, and raisins. Some also add chopped prunes.
