The way we make traditional Venezuelan arepas in our house. Every Venezuelan family has their own way of making it. You can skip the griddle/oven steps if you have a "Tostiarepa" (think panini press for arepas) but since my husband thinks it's sacrilegious, we do it this way. We'll start with the measurement recommendations on the back of that ubiquitous yellow bag of "Harina P.A.N" but please note that these are just suggestions and you need to make sure you have the right consistency above all. Buen provecho!
