Scallion Pancakes

Flaky,savoury scallion pancakes are very much famous here in Chinese restaurants,but somehow i never wanted to taste them there, coz they looks exactly like our maida parottas. This pan fried bread goes for simple preparation and they are really easy to make at home. As i choosed cooking with onions as this week's blogging marathon, i used scallions aka green spring onions for making this super delicious pancakes. In case if you dont have spring onions, you can used shallots also yellow or red onions for making this pancakes. So may use even garlic chives for making this pancakes, so the choice is yours to mix and match according to your tastebuds.Check out the other marathoners running this 20th edition of blogging marathon here.


2cups Maida/All purpose flour
1/4cup Boiling water
10nos Green spring onions (trimmed & sliced thinly)
Salt
Cold water (as per need)
1/4cup Oil
Cornstarch (for dusting)

Take the flour,salt in a medium bowl, pour the boiling water and mix it with a wooden spatula, now add cold water and two tablespoons of oil, knead the dough as soft dough.

Dust a clean surface,drop the dough and with your hands knead again for few more minutes and let it sit for 15minutes covered with a towel.

Divide the dough as 5-6 equal balls, roll the ball as a medium size circle, brush the dough with few drops of oil.

Sprinkle the chopped green spring onions as per need over the dough and roll the dough as cylinder, coil the dough cylinder into round .

Lightly dust the surface with cornstarch and flatten the dough into circle with the rolling pin. Repeat the same process with the remaining dough.

Heat a thick skillet on medium high flame,drop the rolled pancakes to the hot skillet, drizzle a tablespoon of oil and pan fry the pancakes until they gets well cooked.

Serve warm with a dipping sauce or simply with sweet chilly sauce.
