COOKING FROM THE CUPBOARD | Scallion Pancakes (Spring Onion Pancakes)

I have a really bad habit of buying bunches of spring onion and then using approximately 1 of them before I forget all about them and they sit, withering in the back of my fridge. This recipe is a quick and incredibly tasty way to use them up!

– 2 cups flour
– 3/4 cup hot water
– 1 tsp sesame oil
– 1/4 cup vegetable oil
– spring onions (roughly 6 total for 3 pancakes)
– oil for frying
– 2 tsp salt
