|Chinese Scallion Pancake|
Wash and finely chop green parts of the scallions( you can use the white bulbs for other recipes). In a large bowl combine flour, salt and water, knead to a smooth and soft dough. Add 5 tbsps oil over the dough, knead for few more mins and cover the bowl with wet towel. Allow the dough to rest for 4 hours. Divide the dough into equal sized balls. Roll out each dough ball into thin circles on a kitchen surface( roll out as thin as possible). Sprinkle the chopped green scallions on the dough circles generously. Roll out the dough circles from one end to form tight cylinder. Roll the cylinder within itself to form spiral and tuck end of cylinder in the center. Once again roll out the scallion stuffed dough into thin circles( pancakes). Repeat the same process with rest of the dough ball. Heat tawa or a griddle, when hot place the prepared pancake on griddle and cook on both sides until golden brown smearing oil if required. Cut each pancakes into four and serve hot along with soy sauce and chilli vinegar.
