Green Onion Cakes

Makes 12

 

Green Onion Cakes These unleavened fried breads are thin and flat, crisp outside, moist and chewy inside, and bursting with onion flavor. I like to serve them the traditional way, as street vendors in Beijing do: sliced into wedges and eaten out of hand, plain or with a spicy chili-garlic dipping sauce.

 

3-1/3 cups flour
1-1/4 cups boiling water

Dipping Sauce
1/2 cup chicken broth
2 tablespoons soy sauc
2 teaspoons chopped green onion
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon chili sauce
1/4 cup solid vegetable shortening
   or cooking oil
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 cup chopped green onions
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
Cooking oil

 

Getting Ready
Place flour in a bowl. Add boiling water, stirring with chopsticks or a fork until dough is evenly moistened. On a lightly floured board, knead dough until smooth and satiny, about 5 minutes. Cover and let rest for 30 minutes.

Combine dipping sauce ingredients in a bowl.

On a lightly floured board, roll dough into a cylinder; cut into 12 equal portions.

Make each cake:
Roll a portion of dough into an 8-inch circle about 1/8 inch thick; keep remaining dough covered to prevent drying. Brush with a thin film of shortening. Sprinkle with a small portion of sesame oil, green onions, salt, and pepper. Roll dough into a cylinder and coil dough into a round patty; tuck end of dough underneath. Roll again to make an 8-inch circle about 1/8 inch thick.

 

Cooking
Place a wide frying pan over medium heat until hot. Add 2 tablespoons cooking oil, swirling to coat sides. Add 1 cake and cook, turning once, until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Remove and drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining cakes, adding more cooking oil as needed.

Cut cakes into wedges. Serve hot with dipping sauce.
