Taiwan Onion Cake


1 3/4 c all purpose flour
3/4 c self-rising flour
1 c boiling water
2 tsp oil
2 stalks spring onion (minced)

1. In a mixing bowl, combine all purpose flour and self-rising flour. Slowly add the boiling water into the flour and stir until it forms a rough dough. Add the oil and stir for another minute or so. Cover dough with wet cloth and let sit for about 1 hour.

2. On a floured surface, knead dough briefly and then cut into thirds and continue kneading until dough is smooth and elastic. Roll each of the three sections of dough out into a flat piece approximately 1/2 cm or 1/4 inch thick. Brush the pancake with a bit of oil and sprinkle with spring onion. Roll up the pancake and cut into 8-10 pieces. Use the palm of your hand to flatten each piece. Roll out again.

3. Heat a bit of oil in a large skillet. Fry pancakes until both sides are golden brown. Serve whole or cut into wedges (similar to a pizza).
