 Spring Onion Pancakes
 Spring Onion Pancakes
When I took up international flat breads as my theme for this
week’s theme the last thing I expected was the use of a rolling pin.

Not because I have anything against a rolling pin but its
not my best friend. 

I cannot roll out chapattis, parathas! I know I have them
on my site but they are not out of choice. I do not enjoy the job! When the
push comes to a shove I make them but the difference shows especially when I eat
Last month when we were at Foodology I was rolling out the chapattis
needed for choor choor rotis and I was looking out for reassurance there. I mean
I am among experts here and … but my friends were all support that I was doing well.
Buoyed by their reassurance here I am with Spring Onion
Pancakes and they were loved at home.

Spring Onion Pancakes

Recipe Source: Here and Here

  • 1 ½ cups wheat flour
  • ½ cups Maida
  • 1 cup warm water
  • Oil for the pancakes, such as vegetable, sesame, or shortening
  •  salt
  • 1 cup spring onion greens, chopped fine


  • Mix the flours well then gradually add the water and make a smooth
    dough. Knead a bit more till the dough is smooth and elastic.
  • Coat this ball of dough lightly
    in oil and put it back in the bowl. Cover the bowl with a plate and let the
    dough rest for about 30 minutes.
  • Mix the spring onion greens with salt in a bowl and set aside.
  • Make balls out of the dough the size of which is bigger than a table
    tennis ball and smaller than a tennis ball.
  • Roll out 1 ball until it is a thin circle. (Actually rolling it
    in a rectangle will make better sense but I am more used to a circle.
  • Brush the top of the rolled out dough with oil, then sprinkle it evenly
    with chopped spring onion and salt mixture.
  • Roll up the dough in a tightly coiled long snake of rolled-up dough.
  • Coil the dough and let it rest for at least 15 minutes, while you
    repeat this process with the rest of the dough.
  • Roll out the coiled dough bundle into a flat, smooth, round pancake with
    a rolling pin or with your hands.
  • Heat a tawa over medium-high heat, and transfer the rolled out pancake
    to the tawa.
  • Cooking is like you cook a chapatti just a little different, wait till
    you get small bubbles on the pancake.
  • Once there are bubbles turn it around, increase the flame and spoon ½ tsp
    of oil around the edges. Smear the backside of the spoon to the pancake. Almost
    immediately you will get a delicious cooked smell. The pancake has brown spots
    on the underside.
  •  Flip and cook for an additional
    2 minutes on the other side, or until golden brown.
  • Repeat steps for cooking the pancakes till all are done.
  • Serve immediately with soy sauce
    or another dipping sauce.

  •  This recipe calls for oil in two different places: Once to make
    the filling, and once to fry the pancakes I used the same rice bran oil both
  •  If you would like to make a few pancakes but save the rest for
    later, you can save the dough in the fridge for up to 5 days. Just make sure
    the dough is oiled and well-covered. You can also roll out individual pancakes
    and stack them between well-oiled layers of wax paper.
