Pan-Fried Chinese Pancakes Recipe
A savory dough is sprinkled with green onions and sesame oil, coiled into a round, then rolled out into flatbreads and pan-fried. Serve with hot and sour sauce or your favorite Chinese sauce for dipping.
I think the amount of flour is off. I had to add 3/4 cup more to make soft dough otherwise the dough will be runny. There won't be any kneading to do! I live in Shanghai and there's this thing called "Dong Bei Qiang Bing" and it looked a lot like the photo here but this definately wasn't it. Because this so-called "pancake" lacks in taste and need sauce to dip it in. I've had many Chinese street food but this one is not for me.
Overall, a decent recipe. It was too tough and chewy for my tastes, but I think maybe that was a mistake on my part.
Moist, oniony inner layers accompany each bite of these crispy, fragrant scallion pancakes.
4-28-11: I love scallion pancakes! I would've lowered the ratings if I made it as is. Just by looking, I know and agree with the flour/water being way off. Start with 1/4 cup water (if using the 1 cup flour;8 smaller pancakes or 4 reg sizes) and add more by a teaspoon at a time if needed. I also skipped the flour/veg oil crumb mixture; to me, it was unnecessary. 12-16-12: I didn't feel like kneading with my hand today, spin used the bread machine instead but used the whole amount of 3/4 water and added at least 3/4-1 cup flour.
These are so yummy. My friend would take me to restaurants and had to order for us in Cantonese and he'd always get onion pancakes for us.
Yummy! Mine came out crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside, and had a great taste. I did add about 3/4 c extra flour, and also doubled the salt.
