3 cups flour (Use a liquid measuring cup to measure!)
1 cup boiling water
1/2 cup room temperature water
green onions/scallions (as much as you want)
1-2 teaspoon salt
A few Tablespoons of Canola oil
Cooking oil for frying
Prepare your scallions by washing them, shaking off excess water and chopping them into small pieces. Then, mix the salt into the green onions.
For the dough, put the flour in a mixing bowl and add boiling water. Mix thoroughly. (It will be flaky.)
Add in the room temperature water gradually and knead the dough in between each addition of water.
Knead the dough until it does not stick to the bowl or your hands. If it still sticks, you can add some flour to the dough.
Place the dough into the bowl and cover the dough with a wet paper towel and let it sit at room temperature for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, put it in the fridge for another 10-15 minutes.
Prepare your cutting board by sprinkling flour to ensure the dough will not stick. Take out dough and grab half of the dough and roll it out into a large thin sheet.
Heat cooking oil at medium heat in a frying pan. Once oil is heated, place pancakes in pan and flip once you get a golden brown color. Remove them from the pan once you get the desired golden brown color on both sides.
Then go ahead & enjoy them! Just look at those flaky layers! I can't believe we did it! :)
These freeze really well! Just package them in freezer bags. When you want to eat them, defrost them in the fridge for a day, quickly re-fry them right before your meal and they taste fresh!
