Arepitas de Maiz (Cornmeal Fritters) is a delectable side dish that can also be served as party food and is so easy and quick to make.

– ¼ cup milk (whole or skim), + 2 tablespoons
– 2 egg (large)
– ¾ teaspoon salt
– 1 teaspoon aniseed
– 1½ teaspoon sugar (white, granulated)
– 1 cup oil for frying
Mix cornmeal, milk, eggs, salt, aniseed, and sugar. Cover and let it rest in the fridge for an hour (this step is optional, see notes)
In a frying pan heat the oil over medium heat. Pour the mix one spoonful at a time into pan, making small thick pancakes. Fry and turn till golden brown on both sides.
