  • Sift your flour into a large bowl and after that, make a hole at the center of the flour.
  • Slowly add your water and mix the flour and water together using your hands.
  • Keep kneading and mixing the dough until you form a firm ball.
  • Get a plastic wrap and envelop your dough with it. Leave it be for about half an hour in just room temperature.
  • After half an hour, unwrap the dough and divide it into medium sized balls.
  • Sprinkle a flat surface with some flour and roll out medium-sized dough using a rolling pin to make flat circular dough.
  • Get your pastry brush and brush the top of the circle with vegetable oil.
  • Sprinkle salt on top of the flat dough and then go with the scallions.
  • Take one side of the circle and roll it to the other side so it will coil up like a snail.
  • Put a large skillet over a medium-high heat and add veggie oil to the skillet.
  • Pan-fry the pancakes until both sides attain a golden brown coloring.

  • Prepare the Dough: Follow the original recipe to prepare the Scallion Pancake dough. Make sure it’s well-rested and ready for shaping.
  • Divide the Dough: Divide the dough into small, golf ball-sized portions. This will make it easier to handle.
  • Flatten the Dough: Take one portion of dough and use your hands to flatten it into a thin, round pancake. You can also use a rolling pin, but be gentle to avoid tearing.
  • Preheat the Skillet: Place a non-stick skillet or frying pan over medium-high heat. Add a tablespoon of cooking oil and spread it evenly across the pan’s surface.
  • Pan-Fry the Pancakes: Once the oil is hot, carefully place the flattened dough into the skillet. Cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until both sides turn golden brown and crispy. You may need to adjust the heat to prevent burning.
  • Repeat and Stack: Continue this process for the remaining dough portions, adding more oil to the skillet as needed. As you finish each pancake, stack them on a plate lined with paper towels to absorb excess oil.
  • Serve Hot: Scallion Pancakes are best enjoyed hot and crispy. Serve them immediately with your favorite dipping sauce, such as soy sauce with a dash of rice vinegar and a sprinkle of sesame seeds.

Cooking Tips

  • Dough Delight: The foundation of a great Scallion Pancake is its dough. Ensure it’s smooth and elastic by kneading it thoroughly. Don’t rush this step!
  • Roll It Thin: To achieve that signature thin and crispy texture, roll out your dough until it’s paper-thin. This will result in those delightful layers.
  • Scallion Spread: When spreading the scallions over the dough, make sure they’re evenly distributed. This ensures every bite bursts with flavor.
  • Perfect Pan Temperature: Heat your pan over medium-high heat and add enough oil to coat the bottom. Your pancakes should sizzle when they hit the pan.
  • Watch the Clock: Cooking time matters. Each side should be golden brown, which usually takes about 2-3 minutes per side. Patience pays off!
  • Press and Fry: For extra crispiness, press the pancakes gently with a spatula while frying. It’s the secret to that satisfying crunch.

Serving Suggestions

  • Dipping Delights: Serve your Scallion Pancakes with a dipping sauce made of soy sauce, vinegar, and a touch of sesame oil. The combination of flavors is divine.
  • Sides That Shine: Complement your pancakes with side dishes like hot and sour soup, seaweed salad, or a simple cucumber salad. These contrasting flavors make for a delightful meal.
  • Garnish Galore: Top your pancakes with extra sliced scallions, sesame seeds, or even a drizzle of chili oil for added flair.
  • Wrap and Roll: Get creative by using Scallion Pancakes as wraps for thinly sliced vegetables, roasted meats, or even tofu. It’s like having your own Asian-style taco night.
  • Perfect Pairings: Beverage-wise, opt for green tea, a light lager, or a refreshing lychee soda to balance the richness of the pancakes.
