Vegan Scallion Pancakes

This restaurant-style classic savoury vegan scallion pancakes you can make it home easily. These thin, round savoury pancakes are crispy outside and chewy inside. Scallion or green onion pancakes are famous Chinese street food that usually eaten in breakfast or as a snack. Green onion pancakes are a savoury Chinese flatbread simply made with flour, water, salt, and chopped scallions.

My version is crispy & flaky outside and chewy inside. Somewhat a messy thing to make, but totally irresistible to eat. The unleavened dough is shallow fried to a golden crisp and served hot with vinegar-based dipping sauce. Scallion pancakes are quite similar to the Indian paratha or Indian flaky flatbread but totally different filling and crispiness. These three-ingredient vegan scallion pancakes are incredibly delicious and easy to make at home. These chewy, flaky, and savoury vegan scallion pancakes are one of my favourite Chinese restaurant-style vegan treats.

Enjoy! Stay healthy, stay humble!
