Homemade Arepas


  • Servings: 8
  • 2 1/2 cups lukewarm water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups pre-cooked corn meal (such as p.a.n.®)
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil, or as needed


    Preparation Time: 10 mins Cook Time: 10 mins Ready Time: 20 mins

  • stir water and salt together in a bowl. gradually stir corn meal into water with your fingers until mixture forms a soft, moist, malleable dough.
  • divide dough into 8 golf ball-size balls and pat each one into a patty about 3/8-inch thick.
  • heat oil in a skillet over medium heat until shimmering. working in batches, cook corn patties in hot oil until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes per side. transfer cooked arepas to a paper towel-lined plate to drain until cool enough to handle.
  • slice halfway through each cake horizontally with a thin serrated knife to form a pita-like pocket.
