I went web-surfing to see if I could find a recipe for homemade pancakes to go along with Toni Gifford's Moo Shu Vegies #137090 because I wanted an authentic taste and due to a little web-surfing this is what I found. I don't know how authentic it is but I'm willing to give it a try. Thanks for the idea Toni and thanks to Tom Fitzmorris for posting it. I haven't made this yet so times are just a guesstimate but please feel free to change it.
- Mix the salt into the flour with a fork. Pile the flour onto a clean counter and make a well in it with your fingers. Pour the oil into the well, followed by about half of the hot water. Mix the flour into the water and make into a dough, adding a little water at a time until you have a damp dough. Knead the dough for a bout 10 minutes or until smooth.
- Divide the dough into 18- 20 balls of about equal size. Flatten and roll them out into discs about 2-3 inches in diameter. Brush the tops of half of these with a little oil and place the other half of these on top. Dust with a little flour and roll out into thin pizza like circles about 6-8 inches across. Stack with waxed paper in between the pancakes.
- Heat a griddle or large ungreased skillet over medium-low heat. cook one at a time turning often until bubbles begin to form in the dough. Do not brown! With the tip of a knife seperate the pancake into two and place on a warm plate covered with a clean dampened towel mositened with hot water. Continue doing this until all the pancakes are done. Enjoy with Toni's Moo Shu Vegetables!
Made these to go with Moo Shoo Chicken by Chris from Kansas. They are a little labor intensive but my husband really liked them so I will make them again. I might try making them earlier in the day next time or a day earlier, then reheat. We kept ours warm in a tortilla warmer which worked really well. I found the instructions a little confusing though. It says it makes 40 pancakes, but the instructions say divide dough into 18-20 balls? So, I'm not sure I really made these correctly, but they came out fine, so I will use this again. Thanks.
