Pan-Fried Chinese Pancakes


one hour and ten minutes we are serving 8 people 

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup of warm water
  • 1 cup of multi-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon of vegetable oil (if you want)
  • 1 tablespoon Asian (toasted) sesame oil, or as needed
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped green onion
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, or as needed


Preparation time: 30 minutes, cooking 40 minutes total ready in one hour and 10 minutes


  1. allow the salt to dissolve in warm water, mix in 1 cup of flour to make a soft dough. Turn the dough out onto a well-floured open  surface to work on, and knead until slightly springy, about 5 minutes. If the dough is sticky, add in 1/4 teaspoon of vegetable oil. Divide the dough into 8 equal-size pieces, and keep the pieces covered with a cloth. Seperatly
  2. In a dish, mix 1/4 cup of flour with 1 tablespoon vegetable oil to make a mixture like well crumbs.
  3. On the surface that is floured , roll a piece of dough out into a thin square, brush the dough with toasted sesame oil, and sprinkle lightly with about 1 1/2 teaspoon of the flour-oil mixture. add a little  about 1 tablespoon of chopped green onion onto the dough, then spread the onion out evenly. Starting with a long end, roll the dough up into a rope shape, pinch the ends closed. then Roll the rope shape into a flat spiral, and press lightly with your hands so it does not unroll later while being cooked
  4. put the spiral down onto the floured work surface, then slowly, softly roll it out into a pancake with the onions folded inside, turning the pancake over often as you roll it out. Roll gently and turn often to dodge making holes in the pancakes.
  5. Heat a pan and brush with vegetable oil. fry each pancake in the hot skillet until golden brown on both sides, about 5 minutes per side. Cut into wedges and serve warm.
