Dipping sauce


1.Place flour into a large mixing bowl. Using a wooden spoon gradually stir in boiling water and 1/3 cup of the cold water (add remaining water if dough is too dry).
2.Turn mixture out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead until mixture comes together to form a sticky dough and continue kneading until dough is no longer sticky and looks slightly grey. Cover the dough with cling film and rest 15 minutes.
3.To make green onion filling, combine sesame oil, salt and green onions, mix well. Set aside 1 teaspoon of green onion mixture for the dipping sauce, before adding sesame seeds.
4.Divide the dough into 8 even pieces. Roll out each piece to form a 15cm round. Spread about 1 teaspoon of green onion and sesame seed mixture over top of each round. Using hands roll dough up tightly to form a cylinder shape. Fold ends over slightly and press down to stop any of the filling falling out.
5.Using your hands, roll up dough again, starting from one end to form a snail shape. Press snail side down with hands to flatten slightly and roll out on a lightly floured surface to form a 12cm circle. Repeat with remaining dough.
6.Spray a frying pan with cooking oil and heat over a medium high heat. Cook pancakes on one side for 2 minutes, turn over and cook a further 1 minute.
7.Combine dipping sauce ingredients with reserved green onion mixture and serve with warm pancakes.
