How to make Pupusa (cheese,veggies stuffed cornmeal paratha)

  1. For salad in a medium bowl, toss together the cabbage, carrots and radishes salt , chat masala and lemon juice. Keep aside to use later.
  2. For stuffing-- In a bowl add all the ingredients of stuffing and mix well .
  3. Dough for pupusa-- In a medium bowl, whisk together the wheat flour, corn flour and salt. Pour in 1/2 cup of the water, and using your hands, mix the dough until a soft dough forms.
  4. If the dough is too dry and crumbly, add more water, one tablespoon at a time. And if dough is too sticky, add a bit more flour.
  5. Ultimately, the dough should be soft.PatCover the bowl with a clean towel and let it rest for 10-15 minutes.
  6. Coat your hands with ghee and form the dough into 4 balls.
  7. Flatten the balls gently until they're about 1/2-inch thick discs.
  8. Place a tablespoon or two of mozzarella cheese and veggies mixture into the center and wrap the dough around the filling, pinching it to seal completely.
  9. Pat the dough gently, flattening it and alternating hands until it reaches about 1/4-inch thick and about 4-inches in diameter.
  10. Lightly oil a skillet or cast iron skillet and place it over medium heat. Cook the pupusas for 2-3 minutes on each side, until lightly golden brown. It's a good sign when cheese starts to ooze out of the sides and brown "sun spots" appear on the pupusas' surface.
  11. Serve each person one to two pupusas, top each one with a few spoonfuls of salad.

My Tip:

The edges might crack and become scraggly, not a big deal. To fix the edges, I found it easiest to place the pupusas onto a lightly oiled cutting board and smooth out the edges by pinching them together and rubbing any cracks with a teeny bit of water.
