Green Onion Cake Dough
- 300 grams All Purpose Flour
- 170 grams Hot Water
- 1/3 cup Vegetable oil
- 1/4 cup All Purpose Flour
- 6 Scallion whites
- 2 cups Green Onion or Chives finely chopped
- Salt garnish
- Sesame seeds garnish
- Vegetable oil for brushing and pan-frying
Green Onion Cake Dipping Sauce
- 1 tbsp Soy sauce
- 1 tsp Chinese black vinegar
- 1 tbsp Water
- 1 clove Garlic minced
- 1 tbsp Green Onion chopped
Stir the hot water into the flour in a large bowl. Wait until it has cooled and knead until it forms a smooth dough.
Cover with plastic wrapper or a wet cloth and rest for at least 30 minutes. The gluten will relax, making it easier to roll out.
Heat oil over medium heat and fry green onions whites until browned. Discard the green onion. Pour the flavoured oil into a small bowl or ramekin with flour. Stir until combined.
Cut the dough into quarters and roll a portion into a large rectangle. Sprinkle salt and sesame seeds and brush with a layer of oil-flour mixture. Sprinkle with chopped scallion or chives.
Starting from the long end, roll the dough up like folding a hand fan or accordion. Cover the dough and rest for 15 minutes. Repeat the process and finish all of the remaining dough portions.
Roll each portion into a large pancake, approximately 5 inches in diameter.
Add 3 tablespoons of oil into a hot pan and fry the Green Onion Cakes until golden brown on one side (about 3-4 minutes). Turn over so both sides of the pancake are golden brown.
In a medium sized bowl whisk dipping sauce ingredients together. Serve with hot and crispy Green Onion Cakes.
