Ingredients

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup self rising flour
1 cup boiling water
2 teaspoons oil
2 spring onions (scallions, green onions), washed and thinly diced (or as you like)
a bit of oil to brush on pancakes
a bit of salt to sprinkle on pancakes during frying


Combine the 2 flours in a large bowl. Slowly pour the boiling water into the flour and begin stirring immediately. Wait a few minutes and then stir in the oil. Cover the dough and let it sit for 1 hour.


While the dough is rising, wash and dice the spring onions.


Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead briefly, then cut into thirds and continue kneading until the dough is smooth and elastic.


Roll each of the three sections of dough out into a flat piece approximately 1/2 cm or 1/4 inch thick. (If desired, you can make a thinner pancake, about 1/8 inch thick)


Brush the pancake with a bit of oil, and sprinkle with spring onion pieces. Roll up the pancake and cut into 8 - 10 pieces.


Use the palm of your hand to flatten each piece. Roll out again.


Heat a bit of oil in a large skillet. Shallow fry the pancakes until both sides are golden brown, being sure to sprinkle with a bit of salt during frying.


Serve whole or cut into wedges. Serve plain or with soy sauce or another dipping sauce if desired.
