Scallion Pancakes with Chilli Dipping Sauce


15 minutes


20 minutes


4 pancakes at 27cm diameter


  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour (after sieving)
  • 420-440ml water
  • 1 cup scallions, finely chopped
  • 1/8 tsp five spiced powder
  • pinch of salt
  • Olive Grove lite table spread

Chilli Dipping sauce

  • 1 tsp store bought chilli flakes in chilli oil
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp black vinegar
  • 1 tsp light soya sauce
  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the water with the flour and keep stirring with an egg whisk. Make sure that the water and flour is well combined completely, before setting aside for several minutes.
  2. Add the chopped scallion into the bowl with flour and water. Add a pinch of salt and five spice powder and continue to stir until everything is mixed together.
  3. Heat up 2 tablespoons Olive Grove Lite Table Spread in a pan. Pour a quarter of the mixture into the pan. Try not to pour all the mixture into the centre, but instead, swirl it around using a small spoon to create a perfectly round pancake. Pan-fry over medium heat for around 2-4 minutes or until one side becomes golden brown. Turn over carefully to fry the second side for another 2 minutes. Fry each side another 1 minute for a darker color and crisper taste.
  4. Transfer pancake onto a bed of kitchen paper to remove excess oil. Repeat the pancake making process three more times.
  5. To make the dipping sauce, combine all ingredients in a small bowl, and whisk until evenly combined.
  6. When serving, cut into small wedges and serve with chilli dipping sauce.
