Green Onion Pancake:

  1. For the Green Onion Pancake, place the flour into a large bowl, add the salt and stir to combine. Make a well in the centre and add the hot and cold water. Mix well to form a dough.
  2. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface and knead until the dough is smooth and elastic. Divide the dough into 12 equal portions and set aside until needed, covered with a tea towel.
  3. Trim the green tops from the spring onions and reserve until needed. Place the garlic, the white end of the spring onions, olive oil and sea salt into a large mortar and pestle and pound to a coarse paste. Set aside until needed.
  4. Slice the green ends of the spring onions very finely on the diagonal and set aside in a bowl until needed.
  5. To make a pancake, lightly floured work bench, roll a ball of dough into a rough square. Spread a little of the garlic and spring onion paste over the dough and lightly sprinkle with green spring onion slices.
  6. Starting at one end, roll the dough up into a log shape. Then roll the log into a spiral. Using the rolling pin, roll the spiral out flat. Repeat with the remaining dough and spring onion filling
  7. Heat a little of the canola oil in a heavy based frypan. Once hot, fry each pancake until golden, then flip and fry the other side until golden, about 2 minutes each side.
