Greatest Super Bowl Snack You’ve Never Heard Of
Mongolian Green Onion Cakes. They are simple but tasty… salty, sweet and spicy! They are like a savory pancake you serve with chili garlic paste and soy sauce.
Here’s the recipe:
3 Cups of bread flour
1 and a 1/4 cups of boiling water
1 bunch green onions
freshly ground black pepper
vegetable oil for frying
soy sauce for dipping
garlic chili paste for dipping
Pour the boiling water into the flour and stir with a fork until well combined. Place dough on a floured cutting board and knead until smooth. Then place in a oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let the dough rest for about an hour. To roll the cakes divide the dough into 16 equal pieces and roll into a disc about 1/8″ -inch thick with a rolling pin. Brush lightly with vegetable oil, season well with salt and pepper, and sprinkle green onions on one half. Roll the dough up into a cylinder, then into a coil. Then roll out again into a disc approximately 1/8″ inch thick adding flour as needed.
Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat and add enough oil to cover the surface. Fry each cake until golden brown, about 1 to 2 minutes. Turn and cook the other side for 1 to 2 minutes longer, or until golden brown and cooked through. Drain on paper towels.
Cut into wedges and serve immediately with soy sauce and garlic chili paste for dipping.
