(Portion=165 g, Calories= 500 kcal)
♨ What You’ll Need
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 1 teaspoon of sesame seeds (white)
- 1 cup of all-purpose flour (120g)
- ½ a cup of scallions
- 3 cloves of garlic (crushed)
- 4 teaspoons of chives (leaves)
- A pinch / two of salt
- 2 teaspoons of chili flakes
- One small bottle of sesame oil (drizzle on pancakes last)
♨ How to Make this
Using a food processor, first sift your flour into the mouth of the processor while slowly adding hot water to the mix while the blade turns it into a doughy finish. When the dough starts to thicken and forms a ball, stop adding more water. Scoop out the contents of the processor and cover the ball of dough with a damp cloth. Let this sit for about 30 minutes before you start to work on it to make your pancakes. Sprinkle some flour on your cutting board before rolling out the dough. Using a rolling-pin let it spread out into a rectangular shaped piece of dough.
Using a brush, coat the surface generously with olive oil before showering it with the scallions, chili flakes, crushed garlic, chives, sesame seeds and salt. Roll the dough up into a tube like fold, before cutting it into equal portions and making a spiral out of each one before individually rolling these out again. Flatten it into pancakes of about 5 inches in thickness, and then drop these one at a time into a hot pan awaiting on the side with the three tablespoons of olive oil. Wait for 4 minutes while each side browns considerably, before flipping it over. Drizzle the top of the pancakes with sesame oil, and then enjoy your scrumptious spread of scallion pancakes.
