You can either use the sesame oil to bake the scallion pancakes in or vegetable oil. I use vegetable oil for the pan frying of the scallion pancakes

How to make the best Chinese scallion pancakes

You have two options when making the dough by hand or with a food processor. This time I used the food processor but you can easily do it by hand. It will only take a little longer as you have to knead the ingredients into an elastic dough by hand.

Put the flour in the food processor and add the salt. Put the lid on and combine the ingredients in the food processor. Slowly add the warm water to the flour and salt and let the machine mix into a consistent dough.

Take the dough out of the food processor onto a floured board and knead into a ball. Brush some oil into a large bowl and put the dough ball in the bowl. Cover with some plastic wrap, set aside in a warm place and let it rest for at least 30 minutes.

Take the dough ball out of the bowl onto a floured board and cut into 8 equal parts (size of a golf ball). Roll the dough into a tortilla and brush the top with sesame oil. Sprinkle some finely chopped scallions on the tortilla and roll the tortilla in a long snake.

Now coil the snake roll into round dough bundle. Flour the dough bundle and roll out the coil bundle into a round tortilla pancake. Pre heat a skillet over medium high heat. Put some oil in the pan and brush the surface to cover the pan.

Lay the pancake in the pan. Let it sizzle for 2 minutes flip and cook the other side. In the meanwhile make a new pancake as described above. Take the cooked pancake out of the pan and store it on a plate. Repeat this process for the remaining 7 pancakes.

Serving option

To give you an idea how you can serve these pancakes here some serving options:

  • Soy sauce – cut the savory scallion pancakes in wedges and serve with some light soy dip sauce
  • Sweet chili sauce – these taste also great with some sweet chili sauce
  • Breakfast taco – If you are non-vegan make scrambled egg with scallion, bacon (optional) pepper and salt. Fold the pancakes like a taco and scoop the scrambled egg in the scallion pancake
  • Curry – make the savory scallion pancakes a little bigger and you have the perfect substitute for flatbread, naan or roti with your curry. These pancakes will go great together with this vegan lentil curry recipe
  • Peking duck – to give your Peking Duck pancake more flavor this pancake is the perfect replacement
