What is 'Masa'?

You will often see 'Masa' listed as an ingredient in popular Mexican recipes such as tortillas.  Masa — sometimes called 'corn masa flour' or 'masa harina' is a traditional type of flour and translates in Spanish to "dough flour" because it's made from dried masa.   To make masa, a whole process is gone through, first starting with the field corn being dried and then soaked in a solution of lime and water called 'slaked lime'.  After it has been cooked and soaked in 'slaked lime' the corn is then washed and ground into a dough, that is then called 'masa'. Fresh masa is dried and powdered to create masa flour.

If you see a recipe that requires 'masa' don't subsitute this for corn meal or regular cornflour as these substitute products are made from different types of corns and processed differently so you won't get the result you are looking for.
