2 cups masa harina
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons shortening
1/4 cup oil
1 cup warm water and a few tablespoons more if needed
Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl mix well then add shortening and the wet ingredients Knead for a few minutes until all ingredients are well-blended and you are able to form a ball.
Divide dough into 14 small balls. Keep dough covered with a damp towel I used a tablespoon leveled with the dough to get the same measurements.
Pat balls out to form a disc 4 to 5 inches in diameter and about 1/4 inch thick I used a tortilla presser.
Place gordita on a preheated griddle that has been preheated at 400° skillet or comal will do. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, flip over and cook 3 minutes more. Start warming up your oil in a small pot but big enough to fit the gorditas, now that you have cooked the gorditas on the griddle place the gordita in the hot oil and cook to a golden brown you will see it puff up right away noe flip to the other side and cook to a golden brown. Now on a paper lined plate stand the gorditas to drain. allow to cool a bit before cutting the slit. Fill with desired fillings.
