Corunda is a Mexican type of tamale, but wrapped in a long corn or reed plant leaf, and folded, making a triangular shape or spherical shape. They are typically steamed until golden and eaten with sour cream (Mexican crema)and red salsa. Unlike typical tamales, they do not always have a filling. They are usually made using corn masa, salt, lard, and water. Some corundas are filled with salsa on the inside. They are commonly sold by the dozen.

It is a common food in the state of Michoacán.[1]
