Eating in China is soooooo much fun! You just walk around the street and there are people with little carts set up, or in tiny storefront shops, selling delicious dumplings, soups, buns, and my new favorite—spring onion pancakes! The only way these are anything like a pancake is they're flat. Other than that they are more like a yummy, savory, fried dough (I definitely wouldn't recommend them for breakfast). In China, they only cost us about ten cents each, and I got one fresh from the cooker. It was so hot it burned my hands, but it was worth it!

I really wanted to learn how to make these so I got Moo-Cow's expert cooking help. It turns out that they are simple to make with just a few basic ingredients! Here's our recipe. I hope you find them as delicious as we do!

Spring onion pancake ingredients

 

You'll Need

  • 3 cups plain flour
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1 tsp oil (plus some for cooking)
  • salt (optional)
  • 1 small bunch of spring onions (about 5 or 6 stalks)

 

Mixing ingredients

 

 

 

 

1. Mix the flour, oil, hot water and a dash of salt together in a bowl until crumbly.

 

 

 

 

 


Kneading dough

 

 

2. Add the cold water while gradually working it into the dough. Mix until you have an sticky dough with even consistency. You don't have to use your hands like Moo-Cow, but if you do be sure to flour them to help keep the dough from sticking.

 

 

 

Covered dough

 

 

 

3. Cover the dough and let it sit for 30 minutes.

 

 


Cut spring onions

 

 

4. While you wait for your dough, cut your spring onions (aka Scallions) into litte round slices. Don't be afraid to cut the onion all the way down to the end, it's all good!

 

 

 

Flatten dough.

 

 

5. Spread out a piece of wax paper and dust it with flour. Rip off a hunk of dough and flatten it out into a thin circle.

 

 

 

 

Adding spring onions

 

 

6. Sprinkle your flattened dough with the chopped spring onions.

 

 

 

Roll the spring onion pancake

 

 


7. Roll your spring onions up in the dough.

 

 

 

squishing the spring onion pancake flat

 

 

8. Squish your roll back into a flat pancake! Make sure you flatten it pretty well so it cooks properly.

9. Add some oil to your pan and get it good and hot. Fry your spring onion pancakes until they are golden and crispy on both sides.

 

 

 

Eating spring onion pancakes

 

 

10. Eat them while they're hot (but not too hot)!

 

Also, you can follow Moo-Cow's lead and make a simple dipping sauce. He made his with 2 parts soy sauce, 1 part rice vinegar, some garlic slices and a sprinkle of chopped spring onions. Mmmm, soooo good!

Let us know how you like them!

We've been loving these here at MCFC headquarters. They are also good with a little garlic inside.
