Recipe Japanese Spring Onion Pancakeor Chinese Scallion Pancake


Japanese spring onion pancake or sometimes called chinese scallion pancake is one of my favourite savoury pancake. The secret recipe making a crispy and delicious spring onion pancake is made a papaer thin dough and applied a generous amount of oil before folded  and rplled the pancake. Oil keeps each layer of rolled dough separated and thus made is crisp up when the pancake is heated in the pan. My sister like to add the whole part  (including the white part) of the spring onion, but i prefer using only the green because the white part gor more moisture and it’s made the layered pancake dought not crisp up.

Japanese Spring Onion Pancake Recipe

Spring onion/Scallion/Leek/Green onion pancake confused me from the very beginning when i’m googling it. Mostly everybody describe the dish as a chinese cuizine. The NHK WORLD show “Your Japanese Kitchen” call the dish Japanese Leek Pancakes, and  i’ve been eaten the same dish in japanese restaurant. Anyway, who the hell cares about the dish come from, but i’m preety sure that this appetizer taste really great. Savory, crispy and distinct umami flavour derived from browned spring onion and wheat dough. Dip in your favourite sauce and it’s will be great evenmore.
