Cong You Bing (Chinese Scallion Flatbread)


  1. 3 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 3/4 cup boiling water
  3. 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  4. Vegetable oil
  5. 4 scallions, sliced thinly
  6. 1 teaspoon coarse salt


  1. Combine flour, boiling water, and sesame oil; stir quickly to incorporate. Slowly add up to 4 tablespoons cold water to for a soft dough. Knead about 5 minutes. Cover and set aside for 30 minutes.
  2. Divide dough into four pieces. Roll one part into a large, thin round. Brush evenly with vegetable oil, then sprinkle with scallions and salt.
  3. Roll up the round tightly; pinch ends to spiral. Spiral roll into a snail shape. Flatten with palms for a thicker bread, or roll for a thin one. Repeat with remaining dough.
  4. Heat vegetable oil in a heavy skillet; cook each round until golden brown, shaking pan frequently, 3 to 5 minutes per side.
