Hello, everyone, and welcome to Latin Twisted Dishes with Neil Fuentes and today is gonna be one of my favorite episodes. We're gonna talk about arepa. Arepa? What is arepa? Arepa is the national bread in my country, Venezuela and today, I'm gonna show you how to make it in two different ways. We're gonna make 'em baked, and we're also gonna make 'em fried. What we're gonna do with the arepa is very simple. The ratio to make the dough is always the same. It's going to be one cup of water, with one cup of flour. But, if you decide to do more, you do two cup of water, two cup of flour, and so on and so on, and so on. You season it with a little bit of salt, and then you're gonna start kneading your dough by moving it around and around, and around, and around. And, you're going to know that the dough is ready when the actual dough cleans the bowl. Once your bowl is completely clean, that means your dough is ready. once the dough is ready, we're gonna proceed and cut it in four, with our hands, and then we're gonna separate those four pieces and we're gonna make the arepa by making a bowl first, and then flatten it with our hand. And, then, the baked ones, we're gonna sear them on this pan, first. And, then we're gonna bake 'em in the oven for about 10 to 15 minutes, and the fry ones, we're gonna fry it in just simple canola oil for about two to three minutes, on each side. Once the arepas are done, whether it's fried or baked, then we're gonna actually open them like a pocket, with a knife, and then we're gonna put the cheese right inside, and ladies and gentlemen, we are ready to eat 'em. Enjoy these arepas.
