June 8, 2012 at 3:37 pm 2 comments

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup boiling water
pinch of salt and pepper

In a food processor with metal blade, add flour, salt and pepper
with processor on, slowly add water in a stream
process until ball is formed
wrap dough in plastic wrap and let rest for a minimum of 30 minutes

prepared dough
1/2 a bunch scallion, sliced
1 tablespoon sesame oil

1/2 cup oil for shallow frying

On a floured surface, roll out dough into a thin rectangle
brush dough with sesame oil
sprinkle with scallion

Roll dough, jelly roll style
cut in half
twist each piece 3 times to form a short snake
then spiral the snake of dough
flatten with a rolling pin to achieve a 5 to 6 inch pancake

Fry in a hot non-stick pan, coated with oil until golden brown
let rest on paper towel
then cut into wedges and serve immediately with dipping sauce

Dipping Sauce
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons vinegar (since I don’t usually have Chinese chinkiang vinegar on hand, I use seasoned rice vinegar)
1 teaspoon grated ginger
1/2 teaspoon sugar
sprinkling of scallions
sprinkling of chili flakes

Combine all ingredients

Note: A very small batch
1/2 cup flour
1/4 boiling water
2 stalks scallion
drizzle of sesame oil
salt and pepper
oil for sauteing

This makes just one pancake. Perfect.
