Flaky Scallion Pancakes

1 green onion, chopped finely
1/3 cup hot water
1/2 teaspoon salt
Pinch of kosher or coarse salt
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon olive oil


In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and hot water. Mix with a fork or spoon until it becomes difficult to mix. Begin kneading until this comes together into a dough. Dough should be a bit sticky, but not so much that it sticks to your hands. Cover dough with a damp towel and rest for 30 minutes.

Cover your working surface with a light dusting of flour, place your dough ball on the surface, and sprinkle a light coating of flour on the top of the dough. Roll dough out until it is a paper thin rectangle.

Brush the surface of your rolled-out dough lightly with vegetable oil. Sprinkle your pinch of coarse salt over top of the oiled dough. Add your chopped green onions evenly to the flattened dough.

Now roll the dough tightly so it is in the shape of a long log. If any green onions fall out, that is okay! Just try not to tear the dough.

Once dough is in a log, roll the dough inwards to create a cinnamon roll shape. Tuck the end of the dough underneath itself and begin to flatten this into a round shape. Check out video here for a visual!

Once flattened, roll out with a rolling pin a bit thicker this time. About 1/8 of an inch if possible. You should now have a round, flat, pancake-looking dough shape!

Heat up a frying pan on medium heat along with your olive oil. Once hot, add in your pancake. Cook about 4 minutes per side, or until cooked through.

Serve with a simple dipping sauce of soy sauce, chili powder, and rice vinegar and enjoy!
