Cook Time:

Pan fried to crisp golden brown and stuffed with steaming sweet spring onions – this humble fried temptation is so fragrant it’s sure to make you drool merely with its wonderful aroma. Using just simple everyday ingredients along with a few easy steps, this unpretentious yet scrumptious snack can be tons of fun to make.
The secret to that crispy outer layer and chewy texture of the pancake lies in making the right dough. All you do is combine flour, salt and water to set aside. A tip to make the dough easier to work with is to add boiling water directly to the dough. This makes it easier to achieve that multiple layer of pastry and oil, creating that perfect balance of flakiness and tenderness. Adding that crunch and savoury sweetness to the pancake, spring onions are packed with intense flavours, it’s what makes these crunchy chopped greens the perfect complement to this tasty treat.
So versatile it goes well with almost anything from eggs to porridge to stews… the combinations are endless. But these crispy brown discs are so flavourful they are a work of art on their own. Complete this modest art piece with our version of dipping sauce to enjoy that hint of tanginess in every bite.
