  • 2 cups All-purpose flour
  • 1 cup Hot water Boiling
  • ½ cup Scallions Thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon Sesame oil
  • to taste Salt
  • Oil To cook the pancakes
  • 4 tablespoon Soy sauce Thin
  • 4 tablespoon Vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon Ginger Grated
  • ½ teaspoon Sugar
  • ½ teaspoon Red pepper flakes
  • ½ teaspoon Sesame seeds Toasted


  • I used a food processor and I would highly recommend using it (if you have one) as the dough can be a little messy to work with hands. In the bowl of the food processor, add the flour and the salt. Run the processor and add the hot water in a stream until it forms a ball. Knead the dough for few more minutes (about 5 minutes) and then let it rest, covered for about an hour.
  • Divide the rested dough into 4 parts and then keeping the rest of the dough covered, work with one piece at a time.
  • Roll the dough out into a thin circle and brush with sesame oil. Layer it with the sliced scallions evenly and tightly roll it to form a log. Make sure that you minimize the air bubbles as you are rolling.
  • Now coil the rolled log and seal the edges. Keep it aside covered to rest.
  • Repeat the same with the rest of the dough.
  • Now with the first rested coil, roll it out to form a circle. This was the tricky part since the dough tends to have a lot of air bubbles that could pop when rolling. I used a fork to prick the dough every now and then to release the air bubbles. Also do not expect to form a perfect disc. It could be a little shaggy looking but they taste great.
  • Heat a pan/skillet over medium-high heat and smear some oil on it. Cook the rolled out pancakes until they are golden brown on both sides. Add more oil if needed to cook.
  • Cut into wedges and serve with dipping sauce!
  • Combine all the ingredients mentioned above and whisk it to mix well.
  • Serve with the pancakes!
