Chinese Scallion Pancake

파전병 [Pa-Chun-Byung]
Lazy Saturday afternoon, I perused through my kitchen cabinet and refrigerator, trying to make up a combination of ingredients that would make an easy snack without having to go to a market. I spotted scallion on the bottom drawer. I just needed flour and some oil to make this scallion pancake. I had them all, don't you?

For 2 servings:

flour (2cup)
scallion, chopped (1/2cup)
warm water (3/4cup)
Sesame oil, olive oil

For Dipping Sauce:
soy sauce (6tbl)
vinegar (3tbl)

Tip: Balsamic vinegar also makes a wonderful vinegary dipping sauce.

  1. Sift flour. Make a dough with warm water and some salt. Let it sit for 20 minutes in a plastic bag.

  2. Continue rolling, turning and stretching the dough until the dough turns a large flat oval.

  3. Brush sesame oil or butter on one side leaving the outer edges dry. Sprinkle the chopped scallions onto the oily surface.

  4. Roll the dough to a tube and fold into an S-shape.

  5. Overlay one half of the 'S' onto the other half.

  6. Press the dough flat into a large circle oval or a heart :D

  7. On a frying pan, cook the flattened dough in oil.
