What is masa flour ?
Masa flour is made of dried corn.

You need:
1 cups organic Masa Harina Yellow Corn Flour
1 cup organic Masa Harina White Corn Flour
½ tsp Sea Salt
½ tsp Cooking Oil
Lemon Juice From Half a Lemon
1⅓ to 2 cups Hot Water

Put together:
Mix salt into both the masa harina corn flour. Gradually pour water into the dough until you get a firm but slightly soft dough. The dough should be firm and springy when touched, not dry or sticky.
Let the dough rest for about an hour, covered with a lid or a damp towel. This will allow the dough to stay moist. After an hour or so, before you are about to make the tortilla, knead the dough for about 5 minutes. Preheat a griddle or pan to medium-high heat. Divide the dough into 2-inch balls. Roll the dough on a flat surface into 6-inch circles. Place the flattened dough on a hot griddle or flat surface and cook until you see mild brown spots on both sides. Each side of the tortilla should be cooked in about 1 minute.
