Scallion Pancakes

What Are Scallion Pancakes?

Scallion pancakes are fried pancakes that are made with dough instead of batter like Western pancakes are. Serve them as a savory appetizer, side, or breakfast!

Simple Ingredients

Scallion pancakes are made with flour, warm water, salt, scallions, and vegetable oil. That's it!

Prepare the Dough

Make a well in the center of a large bowl with your flour.  Then, slowly add warm water and form a ball of dough using your hands. 

Divide the Dough

Let the dough rest at room temperature for 30 minutes, then divide it into 10-12 medium-sized balls.

Roll Out the Dough

Roll out each ball of dough into a circle, brush the tops with vegetable oil, and sprinkle on the salt and scallions.

Form the Pancakes

Take one side of the circle and roll it up until you reach the other side. Twist the rolled dough into a coil, then smush the coil and roll it out into a circle again.

Fry the Pancakes

Warm a skillet over medium-high heat, add some vegetable oil, and fry the pancakes until both sides are golden brown.
