In a large bowl, combine masa harina, baking powder, salt.
Add oil and about 1 cup of water. Stir to combine. Add enough water to make a dough that sticks together into a ball, but not so much that it sticks to your hands.
Divide dough into 4 pieces and pat each out to a circle about 4-5″ across and 1/2″ thick.
Cook on a hot, dry skillet over medium-high heat for 1 1/2 minutes each side, or until lightly browned.
Heat the oil to 360-375 degrees and place gorditas in the hot oil. After about 2 minutes, they will rise to the surface. Turn and cook another 30 seconds.
Allow to cool and drain on paper.
Split open along the side with a serrated knife. don’t cut yourself!
