Today we are traveling to Asia with the Tortilla Channel. To China to be exact as we are making the base recept for pancakes not just any pancake. We are making 4 ingredients Peking duck pancakes. These little pancakes can be eaten with vegetables and of course Peking duck. The name might suggest otherwise but these are vegan and vegetarian pancakes and you can make them quite easily yourself. Do you want to know how you can make 4 ingredients Peking duck pancakes? Lets get started!
Peking duck pancakes seem like a difficult recipe or at least not something to make yourself. But would you believe that Peking duck pancakes are almost as easy to make a flour tortilla? It only takes 4 ingredients:
- sesame oil
The only that deviates quite a bit from flour tortillas is the kneading. Peking duck pancakes require far more kneading time. But first things first. How do we make the dough? Equal to tortillas so we start by putting the flour and salt into a bowl. Stir through to mix the salt and flour before adding boiling water to it. Stir the water into the flour with a wooden spoon. Let it cool until you can knead the dough.
Here is where it differs from a tortilla. Flour a work surface and need the dough on the countertop for at least 10 minutes until you get a soft silky dough. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and let it rest 30 minutes.
More kneading now for another 5 minutes. Then take the dough and roll it into a long sausage shape before cutting into 7 or 8 pieces. Now you need the sesame oil. First to cover the dough balls with and second to use to brush the skillet or baking pan.
When you dip a dough ball into the sesame oil take a rolling pin and start rolling the dough ball into a thin pancake. The pancake is very fragile so be careful when you lift it into a pan. Heat a pan on medium and bake the pancake. Prevent the pancakes from getting brown. As soon as it is dry turn and bake the other side of the pancake. Stack the pancakes and keep warm in a clean kitchen towel.
They are ready to eat with vegetables like spring onions cut Julienne, Peking duck and Hoisin sauce or you can eat with carrots, spring onions, cucumber and onions cut Julienne. To keep them warm I use a pan with boiling water and a bamboo steamer.
