  • Ingredients

    Pancakes

    2 cups all purpose flour (500 mL)

    ½ tsp salt (2 mL)

    2 Tbsp canola oil (30 mL)

    1 cup boiling water (250 mL)

    Canola oil for brushing pancakes

    1/2 cup sliced green onions (125 mL)

    4 Tbsp canola oil, divided (60 mL)

    Dipping Sauce

    ¼ cup soy saucepan (60 mL)

    2 Tbsp water (30 mL)

    2 tsp brown sugar (10 mL)

    2 tsp rice vinegar (10 mL)

    2 tsp sambal oelek (10 mL)

    2 tsp sesame seeds (10 mL)

    ¼ tsp ginger (1 mL)

    ¼ tsp garlic powder (1 mL)

  • Directions

    Pancakes

    1. Combine flour and salt in a large bowl. Pour 2 Tbsp (30 mL) canola oil into the boiling water and stir to combine. Pour canola oil and water mixture over flour and mix ingredients to form a soft dough. Place in a second bowl, cover, and let rest 30 minutes.
    2. Divide dough into 6 equal pieces. On a lightly floured board, roll out each piece into a circle, about 6 inches (15 cm) in diameter. Brush with canola oil and sprinkle with chopped green onions. Roll up each circle, jelly-roll fashion, forming logs. Starting with one end of each log, roll up the log into a tight coil. (It should look like a cinnamon bun!) Pinch dough end to the side of the coil. Place the coil flat side down and press down with the palm of your hand. Roll out to a circle about 5 – 6 inches (12 – 15 cm) in diameter. Repeat with remaining logs.
    3. Pour 1 Tbsp (15 mL) canola oil into a large frying pan. Cook pancakes about 6 minutes, turning once or twice, until both sides are golden brown about 4 – 5 minutes.
    4. Cut each pancake into wedges and serve with dipping sauce (optional)
