Arepas flat bread are baked in a pan. In Venezuela and Colombia, it is served as a side dish with most meals. It is important to use the special white pre-cooked pan corn flour from Venezuela so that the dough sticks. For this original basic recipe for arepas flatbread, first mix pan corn flour and salt in a bowl. Stir with water to form a thick dough. Allow to swell for 15 minutes. Knead dough by hand until smooth. Shape into three balls and press flat. Round the edges slightly. Thinly brush a skillet with oil and heat. Bake arepas flatbread on medium heat. Only when it moves easily, turn it over and bake the other side. When a tender crust forms and the Arepas Flatbread yields to light finger pressure, it is done. Serve the arepas flatbread warm.
