Fluffy green onion pancakes
I had a metric ton of green onions/scallions at home, so I figured instead of making the usual green onion pancake I’m used to (the flat, flaky, sesame oil laden ones) I’d attempt to make the fluffy bready version.
I combined a little bit from each of these two YouTube videos, with some slight modifications.
From JiaBaoMama above, I thought it was a great idea to marinade the green onions ahead of time.
From the video above, I thought the technique looked solid, so I followed the rolling and folding method.
I used bread flour instead of all purpose - I think it turned out quite nice and fluffy, but I brushed oil after rolling out the dough even though the green onions already had sesame oil.
I was initially aiming to make this for lunch but the dough rise failed miserably (kitchen’s always too cold!) so I had to warm up the oven slightly, turn it off, then pop the dough in there to rise. I finished frying this up around mid afternoon and so it was a delicious and filling snack before we went for the last ski of the season.
I don’t think I’ll bother with the fluffy bread type of green onion pancake for another while - it’s just so much more time and fuss to wait for the dough to rise, then assemble and roll, AND pan fry. Oy. I think if I want something bready and green-onion-y next time I’ll attempt milk bread dinner rolls.
