This recipe is from one of my friends, enjoy!
I once ate green onion pancakes at my friend’s house when I was in primary school and I still make them regularly. Her mother of Taiwanese origin had made this similar recipe, and it was delicious. And it’s only five ingredients! Based on 3 pancakes (35 min).
Tools you will need
150g (Wheat) flour
125 ml of boiled water
10 teaspoons of salt
6 stems of spring onion (finely chopped)
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
- Put the flour in a bowl and gradually add the water to the flour. Mix until the flour becomes more malleable. Then use 1 hand to knead it. If the dough is still too sticky, add some extra flour (but not too much!) Make a nice ball of the dough and let it rest for 15 minutes with a tea towel over the bowl.
- Now we can finely cut our beautiful green onions! Keep them in a small bowl until we can wrap them in the dough.
- Sprinkle some flour over a clean surface (table or counter) where you can roll out the dough.
- Take the ball of dough and divide into three equal pieces
- Now you have three small balls, you can roll them out into a large round pancake that can fit around 2.5 hands.
- Brush the rolled pancake with some oil, add the green onion and some salt.
- Then roll the dough like a croissant, and finally turn it together (like a cinnamon roll, see image below).
- Close the edges and lay the dough on the surface. Carefully squeeze the dough and roll it into a nice thin round pancake.
- Repeat this with the remaining two dough balls.
- Heat in a frying pan with enough oil in which you bake the pancakes until they are nice and crispy and a bit browned.
- Let them bake for about 6 minutes so that they are well done!
- It’s perfect to finish it with soy sauce or chili sauce!
Tip: Cut the green onions till the white part and keep the rest in a pot of water so that you can grow unlimited green onions!
Enjoy your pancakes!
