This recipe is best with Baker’s Plain Flour, my favourite is the special high protein Bread & Pizza Flour but plain Baker’s flour will work!

How to make ahead of time for a Chinese Dinner Banquet or a fast dinner!

The beauty of making these Chinese Spring Onion Pancakes ahead of time is that it gives the gluten a chance to relax and will be easier to flatten to your desired thickness.

You can either make ahead up to the roll into a scroll step and then place in the fridge up to overnight. When ready to use simply, bring to room temperature, flatten and cook.

You could also freeze the dough in balls prior to adding the filling if you are only wanting to cook a smaller number of pancakes.

How to Serve

These Spring Onion Pancakes make a delicious snack, side dish or even lunch. They pair perfectly with the SkinnyAsia Dumpling Dipping Sauce, Sweet Soy Sauce and the SkinnyAsia Chilli Oil.
