  • Place 2 cups of flour into a mixing bowl. Pour in the boiling or very hot water into the bowl and mix with a wooden spoon. Dump out the mixed dough and kneed for a few minutes - be sure properly flour your workspace and your hands. You don't want the dough to be sticky.
  • When properly kneaded, form into a ball and wrap with saran wrap - let sit for 30 minutes. Take this time to chop up your scallions or green onions. Also pour your sesame oil into a small bowl and dilute it with 1.5 tbsp of vegetable oil. After 30 minutes have passed, take out your dough and cut it in half.
  • Roll the dough until it looks like picture number 8. Be sure to properly flour your roller, hands, and work surface. Again, you don't want the dough to be sticky.
  • Brush your diluted sesame oil over one side of the dough and salt to taste. You can also sprinkle white pepper if you want. Then sprinkle your scallions/green onions over the dough as shown in picture 9.
  • Roll up your dough the way you would a cigarette. Pinch the ends and make sure they stick together. If the dough is too dry, you may dip your fingers in water and then smooth out the ends with your wet fingers.
  • Roll the dough into itself like you would a cinnamon roll. Make sure the seams are stuck in place. Roll the cinnamon roll like dough into a flat circle - just thin enough so that you can see the scallions or green onions peeking through. Make sure your work surface, rolling pin and hands are properly floured - you do not want it to be sticky.
  • Heat a frying pan with some oil. When hot, shadow fry the pancakes on each side for about 3-5 minutes until golden.
