Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Sift the All-Purpose Flour (1 2/3 cups) into a large mixing bowl and dissolve the Salt (1/4 tsp) into the Water (1/2 cup).
step 2
Slowly add the hot water to the flour, stirring all the time.
step 3
Gradually add the Water (2 1/2 Tbsp) to the mix, bringing it together to form a dough. Knead well for 8-10 minutes until the dough is smooth.
step 4
Roll it into a ball, cover with cling film or a kitchen towel and rest at room temperature for 30 minutes.
step 5
Combine the Spring Onions (1 2/3 cups) with the All-Purpose Flour (1 tsp), Olive Oil (2 Tbsp), Sesame Oil (1/2 tsp), Salt (1/2 tsp), and Ground Black Pepper (1/4 tsp) in a small mixing bowl and set aside.
step 6
Lightly sprinkle flour over the worktop, take the now rested dough and knead it for another 2-3 minutes and then divide it into 4 equal-sized parts.

step 7
Roll each part out into a long thin piece. Try to get each piece as thin as you can without tearing the dough apart, normally around 35-40 centimeters in length.

step 8
Spread 1/4 of the filling evenly over the thin dough. Fold the dough lengthways into the center to form a long strip.

step 9
Coil the strip up into a tight spiral.
step 10
Put each dough spiral between 2 layers of cling film and roll it out until it turns into a thin, circle-shaped pancake.
step 11
Repeat with the remaining dough until you get 4 lovely pancakes, all 3-5 millimeters thick.
step 12
Remove the pancake from the cling film and place it in a large, non-stick frying pan on high heat for 3-5 minutes, until it goes golden brown.
step 13
Flip the pancake over and cook for another 3-5 minutes. Once cooked, remove the pancake from the pan and repeat the process with the remaining dough.
step 14
Let it cool for a few minutes and then cut the pancake into quarters and serve with your favorite sauce. I normally mix together chili oil, sesame oil, light soy sauce, and freshly chopped onion.
