SCALLION PANCAKES

This is an easy-to-make version of the classic Chinese favorite. You can enjoy your scallion pancakes with a soy sauce–based dipping sauce.

Yields1 Serving
 1 cup flour
 1/2 cup water
 1/4 cup milk
 1 egg, beaten well
 1/2 teaspoon salt
 3 medium-sized scallions, washed, dried, and trimmed
 vegetable oil for frying
1

Sift the flour into a mixing bowl. Add the water, milk, egg, and salt. Whisk all ingredients together, taking care to press smooth any lumps in the batter.

2

Cut the scallions vertically down the center. Then chop them on the diagonal into 1/4” pieces. Fold the scallions into the batter.

3

Put some oil into a pan and heat on medium-high to high heat. Pour approximately 1/4 cup of the batter into the pan for each pancake.

4

Cook the first side about 3 to 4 minutes (the edges of the pancakes will begin to turn translucent). Flip and cook the other side until lightly browned.

5

Serve your scallion pancakes hot.

6

This recipe makes about six 4-inch pancakes.
