The Winter Fix

Now that the Fort Greene Flea Market has been shuttered for the winter, if I want papusas, I have to learn how to make them.  The slaw was easy enough, and I had plenty of it from last week.  I found and adapted the recipe from Marion Cunningham’s The Supper Book, where I also found her recipe for papusas.  A simple mix of masa harina, water, and cumin, stuffed with cheese, it was even easier than the slaw.  There was no special timing or technique involved, a literal slapping together of ingredients.  



-mix together 2 cups masa harina, 2 cups warm water, 1T ground cumin and 1/2t salt

-form a ball from 1/2 cup dough, flatten, add 1/3 cup shredded cheese, salt and pepper, reroll, and flatten

-heat 1t oil in a medium pan, add flattened papusa

-cook each side until golden, about 3 minutes each

-serve with slaw
