How to Make Venezuelan cornmeal arepas with Mark Bittman
Arepas, traditional savory cornmeal cakes from Venezuela, are similar to Mexican tortillas and can be stuffed with anything from ground corn to cheese and fish. They are generally more savory than sweet, and their pancake-like dough is much thicker than that of tortillas.
