Green Onion Pancake 蔥油餅

Green onion pancake is easy to make. You can keep them in the freezer and take them out to fry anytime.

Prep Time: 30 mins
Cook Time: 10 mins

1 bundle of green onions chopped
3 cups of all purpose flour
1 cup of water

White pepper
Sesame Oil
Soy Sauce
Chilly sauce

  1. Boil the water either on the stove or through the coffee maker.
  2. Use a big bowl, add the flour, then slowly pour the boiling water over the flour while stirring. The flour should turn into bread dough consistency.
  3. Fold the dough over and over until it is consistent. Sprinkle extra flour if it's too sticky.
  4. Break off a handful of dough, and roll it out with a rolling pin like a pie crust. Make sure to dust the surface of the table or use wax paper so it doesn't stick.
  5. Spread Crisco over the top of the flat dough. Sprinkle salt, pepper, and green onion over the Crisco.
  6. From one edge, start rolling up the dough into a tube shape wrapping over the green onion (like wrapping sushi). Make sure you roll your dough pretty tightly.
  7. With the tube-shape dough, take one end and roll it into a cinnamon-roll shape. Tuck the end into the center.
  8. Sprinkle some flour over the cinnamon-roll shape dough, now roll it flat again. If you like the pancake thin, roll it out thin. If you like it thick, then don't flatten it too much.
  9. Add some oil in the frying pan, use medium heat, and fry the pancake until both sides are brown and crispy.
  10. Serve with soy sauce, sesame oil, chilly sauce and vinegar if you wish.
If you have a hard time rolling, you'll have to wait til I can make a video of this process...
