Easy recipe to make Arepas
- 2 cups Harina Pan White
- 2 1/2 cups warm water
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil (optional, for cooking)
Mixing the Dough:
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the Harina Pan White and salt.
- Gradually add warm water to the dry ingredients, stirring continuously to avoid lumps.
- Knead the dough until it's smooth and slightly sticky. Let it rest for a few minutes to allow the dough to absorb the water.
Forming the Arepas:
- Divide the dough into golf ball-sized portions.
- Roll each portion into a ball and then flatten it to form a disk about 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick.
Cooking the Arepas:
- Preheat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Add a bit of vegetable oil if desired.
- Place the formed arepas on the hot surface and cook for about 5-7 minutes on each side or until they develop a golden-brown crust.
- You can also finish cooking the arepas in the oven at 350°F (180°C) for about 15-20 minutes, ensuring they are fully cooked on the inside.
Serve and Enjoy:
- Once the arepas are cooked through and have a crispy exterior, remove them from the heat.
- Allow them to cool slightly before slicing them open horizontally, creating a pocket for your favorite fillings.
- Fill your arepas with a variety of ingredients such as cheese, ham, avocado, chicken, or black beans to create your desired flavor profile.
Now, savor the delightful taste of homemade arepas made effortlessly with Harina Pan White. Enjoy your delicious and versatile corn pockets!
