Mini Scallion Puffs


This is my version of the popular Chinese scallion pancake, the modern and simplified way. Instead of the traditional flour dough, these Mini Scallion Puffs were made with store-bought puff pastry. Put a generous sprinkling of scallions and sea salt on the pastry and then baked in the oven until golden light brown. These mini puffs will turn out tasty, crunchy, and makes a great in-between meal snack.


Mini Scallion Puffs

Ingredients

1 Sheet (250 g) Frozen Puff Pastry, thawed
4 to 5 Stalks Scallions, finely sliced
Sesame or Peanut Oil
Sea Salt

Dipping Sauce
3 ½ Tbsp Soy Sauce
2 Tbsp Black Vinegar
1 Tbsp Sesame Oil
1 tsp Chili Flakes
1 Scallion, thinly sliced

3-½ inch Cookie Cutter

Method

Preheat the oven to 400˚F. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.

On a lightly floured surface, unfold the puff pastry and cut into circle with a cookie cutter. You will have about 18 pieces. Work with one piece at a time and brush the surface with sesame or peanut oil and sprinkle with scallions and sea salt.

Starting with the edge closest to you and roll up the dough. Then roll it up again from one end like a snail and flatten the roll with your palm. Repeat with the remaining pastry, oil, scallions, and sea salt.

Bake for about 8 to 9 minutes, turn the pastry over, and continue to bake for another 5 minutes, or until golden light brown in color.

Remove from the oven and let cool slightly before serving with dipping sauce, if desired.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
