These chewy sesame scallion pancakes are for all the green onion lovers out there. They're paired with a sweet and salty soy dipping sauce for peak deliciousness. 1. Whisk the flour and salt together in a large bowl. Add the boiling hot water a little bit at a time while you mix everything together with a wooden spoon. Add the sesame oil and continue to mix. If the mixture is too dry, add another ¼ cup of the hot water in little splashes until the dough comes together. 2. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for a few minutes until smooth. Cover the bowl with a kitchen towel and let it rest for 30 minutes. 3. Meanwhile, heat up a drizzle of sesame oil in a large pan and sauté the green onions. Set them aside. 4. In a small bowl, whisk together the sauce ingredients and set that aside as well. 5. When the 30 minutes are up, divide the dough into four equal parts. 6. One by one, roll out the dough pieces into a circle. Go as thin as you can go without tearing them, then brush the surfaces of each circle with sesame oil. Sprinkle on some sesame seeds and spread on a bit of the sautéed green onions. Roll the dough into a log and then coil it into a snail shape. Then, use your fingers or the rolling pin to gently flatten the pancake. 7. Repeat with the rest of the dough. 8. In the same pan you sautéed the scallions, heat some avocado oil and pan fry the pancakes. Cook each side until golden. 9. Serve with the dipping sauce.
