chinese green onion yeast pancakes

this is probably going to be my last how-to in a while since i’m now no longer at home.

these pancakes aren’t the usual green onion pancakes that you see in stores which are non-yeast based. (mom makes those too but i was craving the yeasty, raised dough that these pancakes so deliciously comprise of.)

again i don’t have exact measurements since mom just kinda estimates when it comes to chinese cooking.

1. make dough (hahahha). we put flour, yeast, sugar, warm water ( i think that’s it) in our bread machine and it blends and kneads the dough for us. by the time we take it out of the bread machine, it’s rested and ready to be manipulated.

2. break the dough into manageable pieces. my mom works with half of the dough at a time. start rolling it out…

3. keep on rolling it out till it’s a large piece. the dough is fairly thin by that point.

4. add some salt and oil, and spread it out evenly on the surface of the dough. add chopped green onions.

5. roll up the dough into a tube

6. once it’s a long tube, roll the dough in from both ends

7. until it looks like a ball

8. roll the dough out flat again, this time, into a size that fits the pan that it’s going to be cooking in.

9. brush the surface with water or oil, cover it with sesame seeds.

10. put the flat dough into a preheated, oiled pan on medium heat. add some water so it just covers the bottom of the pan. cover and cook!

11. flip it when one side is brown, may need to flip back and forth a few times so both sides are browned.

still cooking...

it smells of fragrant sesame, it’s got that crunch when you first bite into it, then you taste the dough, it’s soft, it’s slightly chewy, it has a hint of green onions, it’s salty yet slightly sweet. it sends you right into heaven..
