Dipping Sauce - Chinese Green Onion Cake
Why I Love This Recipe
This is one of my father's favorite Northern Chinese appetizer dishes. This cake is thin, flat, crisp outside, chewy inside and bursting with onion flavor.
I like to serve them as street vendors in Beijing do: sliced into wedges and eaten out of
hand, plain or with a spicy chili-garlic dipping sauce.
