  • 270 g all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 2 tablespoon sesame oil


  • Mix the flour, salt and water with a fork until the dough holds together.
  • Once it is cool enough to handle: on a lightly floured surface, knead the dough for 8 minutes until smooth, adding flour if the dough is too sticky. Cover with plastic wrap and rest for 1 hour.
  • Shape the dough into an 8-inch roll and then cut the roll into (8) 1-inch pieces. Cut each slice into halves for a total of 16 pieces. Keep the dough covered so as to not dry out and start shaping two at a time.
  • Roll 2 pieces of the dough into small balls, flatten slightly. Brush the top of one with sesame oil and top with the other circle of dough.
  • Press together and roll the double discs into a 7-8 inch circle. Keep your rolling pin and surface floured so they do not stick or slide due to sesame oil. Repeat with remaining dough and cover.
  • In a heated frying pan or wok add a pancake, one at a time and cook for 30-45 seconds. If air bubbles arise, press down gently. Flip over and cook another 30-45 seconds.
  • Remove from pan and carefully peel apart the 2 pancakes and fold into quarters. Set aside covered to stay warm and repeat with remaining pancakes.
