Shou Zhua Scallion Pancake

I love scallion pancakes, and when the green onions in my garden are large enough, I cut them and make scallion pancakes.

300 g all-purpose flour
180 ml water add more if you need
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
oil for cooking and greasing

Scallion Mixture
16 stalks green onions chopped
3 tablespoons all-purpose (plain) flour
1 teaspoon chinese five spice powder
1 tablespoon oil
1/2 teaspoon of salt

For the mixture: Mix all the ingredients and set aside

Dough: Mix all the ingredients and kneed them until you have a smooth dough. Let it rest for 15 minutes, and divide them in 6 pieces. Brush every piece with oil. Let it rest for 30 minutes.

Flatten every  piece of dough, and distribute the scallion mix. Roll it like a tube, and then roll into a coil-like roll. Then, flatten it again with your hands covered with oil. Place it in a hot pan with some oil, and cook it for 5 minutes per side. ENJOY!

    1. Hi Angie! It is the name given to these scallion pancakes because they are crispy and chewy....there are many variations in scallion pancakes' recipes....Abrazotes, Marcela

  2. There is a house for sale down the street. Can you please buy it so that I can visit you often, empty plate in hand, shamelessly begging?

  3. I've had scallion pancakes in Asian restaurants. Yours looks so delicious. I've never tried making them.
