Authentic Chinese Scallion Pancakes

 

This is my favorite kitchen tool!

 

The Scallion (green onion) Pancake recipe requires 2 1/2 (2.5) teaspoons yeast, 10 cups of all-purpose flours, and 5 1/2 (5.5) cups of water.

 

Add 1 cup of warm water to mix the yeast.

 

Pour the yeast mixture into the mixer.

 

Add 10 cups of all-purpose flour and 4 1/2 cups of water into the mixer. Mix for 15 -30 minutes.

 

Divide the dough into 5 small pieces. Each piece rolls into a thin round sheet.

 

Add 2 tablespoons of oil and sprinkle a pinch of salt onto the sheet.

 

Place handful green onions onto the sheet.

 

Roll the sheet up and make it into a spiral shape.

 

Use the rolling pin to roll the dough thinner. Set the raw scallion pancake aside to rest for 40-60 minutes.

 

After 40-60 minutes, turn on the stove onto medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil to a nonstick fry pan and pan-fry the scallion pancake for 2 minutes until the bottom of the pancake hardens a little. Then add cold water until half of the pancake is submerged. Cover the pan and cook it until the water almost evaporates. Then turn the heat onto low heat to pan fry the pancake until it turns into a golden brown color.

 

You can also make 3 small scallion pancakes from the big one. Make sure to close both ends. Set the raw scallion pancake aside and let it rest for 40-60 minutes.

After 40 minutes, turn on the stove onto medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil to a nonstick fry pan and pan-fry the pancake for 2 minutes until the bottom of the pancake hardens a little. Then add cold water until the half of the pancake is submerged. Cover the pan and cook until there is little water left. Then turn the heat onto low heat to pan fry the pancake until it turns into a golden brown color.
