Green Onion Pancake
Surprisingly, This is the same recipe for tortillas, just the preparation is different. My little boy loves these and has been munching on them all night. I doubled the recipe because I believe in stretching my labor as far as I can. Almost all breads can freeze and defrost well, so I always make more. So here is my double recipe.
6 cups flour
2 cups hot water
3 tsp salt
1 1/2 bunches green onions, chopped
on the kitchen table or in a large bowl measure out the flour. Add salt and mix. make a well in the center and add 1/2 cup water. mix with your fingers. add another 1/2 cup and mix. continue until all the water is used. Knead the dough until smooth. about 5-10 minutes. divided into 4 pieces. cover with a towel or foil.
roll the first piece into a ball and flatten with a rolling pin as thin as a tortilla. sprinkle 1/4 of the green onions over the dough. roll it up like a jelly roll. pinch the ends and roll into a coil. roll out with the rolling pin again, this time about the thinkness of naan bread or pita bread.
fry in oil until golden. (i think you could just dry grill it, but it would be less toasty...)
