  • Divide dough equally into 16 pieces
  • With wet hands, roll each into a ball and flatten from the centre out to make a patty about 1cm thick
  • Heat butter and oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium heat, fry arepas until light golden on each side
  • Place in the oven for about 10 minutes, turning once, to finish cooking. Serve right away topped with sour cream.
