Green Onion Cakes

READY IN: 2hrs 15mins




  • Add salt to flour in a mixing bowl and mix throughly.
  • Add honey to hot water in a separate cup or dish until the honey melts and mixes with the water.
  • Slowly add water/honey mixture into the flour while stirring the flour.
  • Knead the mixture until smooth (approximately 5 minutes). If it is too dry add a little extra water. If it is too wet, add a little flour.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  • After at least an hour remove mixture and roll into a sausage shape and divide into 10 equal portions. You will work with one cake at a time so cover the others so they don't dry up.
  • For each portion of dough, roll into a ball between the palms of your hands, then on a floured surface roll the dough out into a thin round pancake.
  • Sprinkle the surface of the dough with green onions.
  • Roll the pancake into a sausage shape, trapping all the green onions inside the dough.
  • Roll the dough again along the length of the sausage to make a coil shape.
  • With the coil still standing up on your counter top flatten it with the palm of your hand (if you flatten it with the coil lying flat on your counter, the onion cake will open up while cooking).
  • Roll the dough into a circle about 5 inches in diameter and place to the side while you make the rest of the cakes.
  • Heat up the oil in a frying pan or skillet at a medium heat and fry each cake, one side at a time, until it is light brown.
  • Cut into quarters and serve with chili garlic dipping sauce.
