Cantonese Scallion Pancakes

Last month for the  IFC (International Food Challenge )  we had to make some Chinese Cantonese dishes and I had made these beautiful pancakes along with Wonton Soup , Moon Cakes and Sweet n Sour Chicken.

This event is started by Saras and Shobana and I have already posted spiral-moon-cakes for this challenge.

 Theses pancakes are very simple to make and taste yummy. The addition of Spring onions makes them crispy and tasty. Serve it along with any sauce of your choice .







Ingredients : 


For the Pancakes :

2 cups .....................Wheat flour
3 to 4 tbsp.................oil
2 cups ........................spring onion green ( very finely minced)
salt

For the Sauce :

2 tbsp..............soy sauce
1 tbsp...............vinegar
pinch of .............red dry chilly flakes
1/2 tsp.............dry roasted sesame seeds
1/2 tsp...............sugar


Method :

For the Pancakes :

Make a soft dough with flour, salt , oil and hot water and knead it well.

Cover it with a warm towel and set it aside for 1/2 an hour.

Make 6 to 8 balls of the equal size and roll each ball into a thin circle.

Apply some oil and sprinkle some salt on the rolled circle.

Now spread the minced spring onion greens evenly on it and roll the pancake as in the picture.










Again roll it in spiral and press with your hands to flatten it.

Now finally roll the pan cake and cook the pancakes in a pan smeared with oil.

Cook on both sides applying oil.

For the Sauce :

Mix all the ingredients given under sauce .

Cut the pancakes into wedges and serve with the sauce.

    1. Thanks Priya, I usually try to use wheat flour whereas possible instead of maida, but in some cases it is unavoidable....
