In his book, Stupak offers recipes "new wave", as he puts it : "to declare that the only good Mexican cuisine is 'authentic' also assumes that the cuisine has ceased evolving"
For 14 Tortillas
2 Cups Corn Masa Flour (235.2 grams)1 ½ Cup Water (324.7 grams)
For 6 Tortillas
1 Cup Corn Masa Flour (100.8 grams)⅔ Cup Water (139.2 grams)
You will need...
Corn Masa Flour(1 ½ Cup or 168 g), widely available in our supermarkets. Masa harina is different from Corn Flour, in that it's made by soaking corn grains into a slaked lime, a process termed nixtamalization which will loosen the hulls from the kernels and softens the corn.
Sounds odd, but that's exactly how the ancient and wise Aztecs made their Masa Harina. I say wise because they understood that this tedious process would not only enhance the taste but also produce Niacin, a vitamin that was not available in their surroundings - this saved them from a lot of diseases.
Stupak shows in his book how to make Nixtamal, but honestly unless you are bored to death there is no point making it (Making it yourself will not produce a fine flour either) and in the defense of industrial Masa Harina, it can be easily found in supermarkets. You may find organic masa as well.
