Arepas Recipe | Receta de Arepas
Unlike breads, arepas are made with corn instead of wheat. Arepas can be grilled, baked, or fried, depending on personal taste.
They play a major role in the cuisine of Colombia & Venezuela, and are available all over South America in street side stands and restaurants. The outside is crisp but the inside is doughy.
This arepas recipe will serve 8 to 10.
Cook on a heavy, lightly greased griddle over moderate heat for 5 minutes a side, then bake in a preheated moderate (350° F.) oven for 20 to 30 minutes, turning them two or three times during cooking. They are done when they sound hollow when tapped. Serve hot.
