Chinese scallion pancakes
Ingredients
3 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/3 cups boiling water
4 teaspoons sesame oil
6 green onions, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup canola oil


Dipping Sauce:

3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons minced fresh gingerroot
2 teaspoons rice vinegar
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Directions
Place flour in a large bowl; stir in boiling water until dough forms a ball. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 4-6 minutes. Place in a large bowl; cover and let rest for 30 minutes.
Divide dough into 8 portions; roll each portion into an 8-in. circle. Brush with 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil; sprinkle with 1 heaping tablespoon of green onion and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Roll into a thin cylinder (jelly-roll style); starting at one end, twist cylinder onto itself forming a coil, pinching to seal. Flatten slightly. Roll each coil to 1/8-in. thickness.
In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon canola oil. Over medium-high heat, cook 1 pancake at a time until golden brown, 2-3 minutes on each side.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine sauce ingredients. Serve with pancakes.

Mixing Bowl
