Ingredients

How to make it

  • Pour the boiling water over the flour in a medium bowl and mix as best as you can, until the dough is evenly moistened. Let cool for a few minutes.
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until it is smooth and satiny, about 5 minutes. Re-flour the surface and your hands as necessary to prevent the dough from sticking. Return the dough to a bowl, cover with a kitchen towel and let rest for 30 minutes.
  • Stir the sesame oil and vegetable oil together in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • Cut the dough into 8 equal portions and roll each into a ball.
  • Flatten each ball and roll each portion of the dough into a circles 5 to 6 inches in diameter and about 1/8-inch thick. Brush the dough circles with a thin film of the reserved oil and sprinkle each with 1/8 tsp salt.
  • Roll each dough circle into a cylinder (like a jellyroll). Coil the dough cylinder into a round patty and tuck end of dough cylinder under the patty.
  • Lightly dust your work surface with flour. Roll the patty out to a 1/8-inch-thick circle, dusting with more flour as necessary to prevent sticking. Repeat with the remaining dough.
  • Heat a skillet wide enough to fit a cake comfortably over medium heat until hot. Add 1 tablespoon of oil and swirl to coat the bottom (I actually used an electric griddle to make 4 at the same time and it worked beautifully). Slip a cake into the skillet, cover and cook, turning once, until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes on each side (if using a griddle, just cover with large peice of foil; this creates a little steam to cook the oancakes). Repeat with the remaining cakes, adding more oil as needed. Slice each pancake into 6 wedges and serve hot.

    Thanks makeadough; I think people are taking the term "pancake" too literally. These are more like a tortilla, if forced to compare :-)

    OK.... I gotta try this combo. Never would have put onions in pancakes, but I guess if you don't dip them in maple syrup you're ok. right?

    This is great! In China, they serve these at every restaurant as an appetizer or out on the streets as "street food". It's so good.
