A pupusa is a stuffed corn-tortilla, usually served with a spicy coleslaw called curtido.

Pupusas are hand-made and thick. Like all corn tortillas, they are made using masa harina. They originate from El Salvador.

Method

  1. Make the tortillas as shown here, but don't cook them yet
  2. Mix all of the ingredients together to make a soft paste
  3. Divide the mixture into balls, slightly larger than golf-balls and place each ball in the centre of the tortilla and press the mixture out, leaving a gap around the edge
  4. Cover with another tortilla and press together to seal
  5. Heat a griddle pan or heavy frying pan and wipe over with a lightly oiled kitchen towel
  6. Cook each pupusa until it is nicely toasted. This will take about 4 minutes a side
  7. Keep warm while you cook the remaining pupusas

Chef's tip

Serve with curtido

Serving suggestions

To prevent the tortillas sticking to the press, place the 'golf-ball' inside a folded piece of Bake-O-Glide
