Pupusas From El Salvador

One of my colleague had told me abt pupusas a while back and  since then I have been thinking to make them. It’s just like Indian stuff rotla and so I knew I will be able to make it. It is made with corn flour maseca and stuffed with mozzarella cheese. It’s eaten with special cabbage salad called curtido.Here’s How i made it.

  • First make cabbage salad and I changed it little to keep nutrition intact.Mix shredded cabbage, carrot and thinly slice onion in a pot. Add tbsp of water, cover and let it come to boil. Switch it off right away. You want to cook it slightly only. It’s mainly cabbage and carrot,onion is only little bit.
  • Now add salt, apple cider vinegar according to taste. And pinch of oregano. Make it in glass bowl and let it marinate on side. Result should be crunchy.
  • For pupusas, take maseca and follow the pkg instruction to make dough. Basically add pinch of baking soda , salt and warm water.
  • I mixed shredded mozzarella with some chopped cilantro leaves.
  • Now make like stuff paratha and roast with little oil on a griddle . Cook well at medium heat.
  • I had pupusas with cabbage salad and some chopped avocado. Yummy !
  • You can stuff with beans and cheese mix too. Be creative. Green onion will go well too.
  • If corn flour is not available , try jowar/sorghum flour. We need to learn to make things work when we want to do something. 
  • We learn things from ppl we meet and all our surroundings if we keep our mind open. 
  • Enjoy!
