Chinese Scallion Pancakes


Actually I was embarrassed to say I never eaten a scallion pancake before. Not until I made it myself recently using the recipe provided by My Kitchen Snippets. Not sure how the texture is supposed to be like because mine was not fluffy like roti canai, but crispy and savory. Guess will have to buy a packet at the store to truly know the answer.


Hmmm...mine turned out to be the mini size pancakes! :P So no slicing required!


I made 15 small scallion pancakes and it was not bad. We ended out having it for dinner. I also noticed that there is another type of scallion pancake (while browsing through U-tube) which was made with flour & eggs batter (softer version) which I would love to try in the future.

The one that I made is not as fluffy either. Maybe its because I didn't brush enough oil on it before I roll it up. Next time I make this again I will have to brush more oil and roll it thinner.

Mmm, I love scallion pancakes! What I've never been able to replicate though is the soy-sesame dipping sauce that I used to get with them when I lived in the city, it was the perfect combination... Gonna try these though (Check out the Italian girl making home made Chinese food, lol)

Gert, I see, so it's the oil that makes it fluffy.

Thanks SIG! Tastes good too!

WOW Beachlover, who is your master? ;P

Thanks Rita.

Haha Tigerfish, thanks!

Reeni, it's pretty easy to make actually. Give it a try!

Ashley, soy-sesame dipping sauce? Did you try it with soy, vinegar, sugar and sesame oil?
