Mandarin Pancakes

Posted on 19 August 2011 by admin     


2 cups flour
3/4 cup boiling water
2 tablespoons sesame oil

Place flour in a bowl. Add boiling water, stirring with chopsticks or a
fork until dough is evenly moistened. On a lightly floured board, knead
dough until smooth and satiny, about 5 minutes. Cover and let rest for 30
minutes.
On a lightly floured board, roll dough into a cylinder; cut into 16 equal
pieces. Roll each piece into a ball, then flatten slightly into a pancake.
Brush top of each pancake with a light coating of sesame oil.
Place 1 pancake on top of a second pancake, oiled sides together. With a
rolling pin, roll to make a circle 6 inches in diameter. Stack and roll
remaining pairs of pancakes the same way. Cover with a damp cloth to
prevent drying.

Cooking:
Place a non-stick frying pan over lm heat until hot. Add 1 pair of pancakes
and cook, turning once, until lightly browned and bubbles appear on the
surface, about 2 minutes on each side. Remove from pan and separate
into 2 pancakes while still hot. Stack cooked pancakes on a plate while
cooking remaining pairs of pancakes.
Serve pancakes hot. If making ahead, reheat pancakes in a microwave
oven or wrap in a clean dish towel and steam in a bamboo steamer for
5 minutes.
