Spring Onion Pancake is on the menu tonight!  This recipe was from my Hong Kong high school Home Economics class!

For the dough:

10.5 oz plain flour

2/3 cup warm water

1.5 tbsp. vegetable oil

Other ingredients:

2 stalks spring onions (or green onions)

3 tsp salt

oil for frying

Clean and dry spring onions.  Finely chopped.

Sieve flour into a mixing bowl.  Make a well in the middle and add warm water and oil.  Mix well.

Flour a work surface and knead dough lightly.  If it feels too dry, add little bit of water at a time until the dough comes together.

Divide the dough in 6 portions.  Work with one small dough at a time and keep the remaining dough covered with a damp towel.

Roll each dough into a long tube (I also find squeezing with my hands works very well), about 1/2 inch diameter.

Flatten the tube using fingers.  Brush the top of the dough with oil.  Sprinkle salt (very lightly)

and green onion on top of the dough.

Fold the dough long-way in half, taking care to stuff the green onions inside as they will fall out.

Starting from one end, roll the dough into a spiral, resulting in a round flat cake.  Make sure the opening of the dough is facing inwards towards the center.

Once the dough is rolled up, press down from the top with your hands evenly until the cake is about 1/4 inch thick.

Proceed with other dough balls.

Heat oil in pan.  Reduce to medium heat and fry the cakes one side at a time until brown.

I like to use an easy dipping sauce with the pancake:

1/2 tbsp. soy sauce

1/4 tbsp. white vinegar

1/4 tbsp. chili sauce (preferably Chinese kind with sediments)


H mart is going to open in Bellevue, WA!  They also have plan to expand into Seattle.  The Bellevue location is slated for late Fall, but physical location is still unknown.
