Scallion Pancakes
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup boiling water
1/2 cup sliced scallions
1 Tbsp. sesame oil
1/2 cup canola oil
Salt & black pepper to taste

Ginger Dipping Sauce
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup Chinese vinegar (Rice Wine)
1/4 cup sliced scallions
1 tsp. minced ginger
1 tsp. red pepper flakes
1 tsp sugar

In a bowl, sift flour.

Slowly add water in a steady stream while mixing with a wooden spoon. Keep adding water until a ball is formed. With the same procedure, one can also use a food processor with a metal blade.

Let ball of dough relax for about 30 minutes and cover with damp cloth.

On a floured surface, roll out dough into a thin rectangle. Brush on oil mixture, cover with scallions and season with salt and pepper.

Roll out dough like a sponge cake. Cut into 4 pieces. Take one piece and twist 3 times. Make a spiral out of this and roll again. Flatten to achieve a 5"-6" inch pancake.

In a hot, non-stick pan, coat with canola oil and pan sear both sides until golden brown. Cut into wedges and serve immediately with dipping sauce.
