It is very common that the Chinese pancake is cooked without adding in eggs. Mainly because of cost saving. In older days, egg is precious especially for the poor. But mine one is considered as million dollar pancake cause I have dried shrimps on it. haha…. Hubby was craving for Chinese pancake yesterday and I made him this. Its an easy to prepare recipe. So, here’s what I did.
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tspn baking powder
1 tspn salt (to your taste)
1/2 tspn vegetarian granule
1 cup garlic chives, rinsed & cut into bite size
40gm dried shrimps, soaked & pounded
(1) combine flour, baking powder & water into a mixing bowl and beat till well cooperated.
(2) next, stir in salt, granules & chinese chives.
(3) preheat a wok with 3 tablespoon of cooking oil, and saute dried shrimp till crispy & fragrant. Then off the heat and transfer everything to the flour mixture. And fold mixture till everything is well mixed.
(4) preheat frying pan with some cooking oil, then spread 2-3 scope of batter onto frying pan and cook till brown then flip to the other side and did the same thing. Till everything is done. Cut & serve it with chili sauce.
This savoury pancake is simply delicious. Its good to serve at anytime anywhere, especially when you’re at outdoor camping. Hope you guys will love it too. Enjoy and have a great week ahead.
