Makes 4 arepas
1 cup PAN flour
1.25 cups water
Pinch of salt
1 dsp olive oil
Put the water oil and salt in a bowl and stir. Gradually add the PAN flour and stir until it forms a ball. If too stiff add a little more water. Knead for a min by just grabbing and squeezing the dough. Cover and leave to rest for 10 mins.
While the dough is resting heat a black frying pan on 6 for at last 5 mins to warm through.
Form 4 balls from the dough and flatten into about 1.5-2cm disks. Add a little olive oil to the pan and brush around to cover the base. Fry for 7-8 mins each side until golden.
Rest for 5 mins before cutting open like a pitta bread and fill.
