Baked Green Onion/Scallion Pancakes

Green onion or scallion pancake is one of my favorite snacks. I have shared the recipe that is made without any leavening agent. So, this is another iteration that has yeast, and involves some time for the dough to rise, but the results are definitely worthwhile. It is crispy on the outside and soft inside. Furthermore, it is baked, making it a great alternative for anyone who dislikes fried food. Do try the recipe and check out the simple step-by-step video guide.

Baked Green Onion/Scallion Pancakes


370 grams All-Purpose Flour
1 Cup Warm Water
2 Tbsp Sugar
1 ½ tsp Active Yeast
1 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
1 Bunch Green Onions/Scallions, sliced
2 Green Chilies, finely chopped
Sea Salt
Sesame Oil


Put the warm water in a measuring jug or bowl. Add sugar, stir to dissolve and add the yeast. Stir to mix. Set aside for 10-15 minutes or until the yeast mixture is frothy.

Place the flour into a large bowl. Make a well and pour in the yeast mixture and add the vegetable oil. Knead the dough for about 10 to 13 minutes until it is smooth and elastic. Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl. Cover the bowl with a piece of cling film and set aside in a warm place for about 45 minutes to 1 hour or until the dough has doubled in bulk.

Place the dough on a floured board. Divide it into 6 equal balls. Gather the dough into round balls. Let the dough rest for about 10 minutes. Flatten each piece of dough with your palm, and roll into a thin rectangular shape. Brush the surface with sesame oil, sprinkle some sea salt, scallions, and green chilies. Starting with the edge closest (the long end) to you and roll up the dough. Then roll it up again from one end like a snail, tuck the end and let it rest for another 10 minutes.
Repeat with the remaining dough, oil, salt, scallions and green chilies.

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

When ready to bake: Flatten the dough with your palm and fingers to your desired thickness. Place the pressed dough on a baking pan. Brush the top with sesame oil. Bake for about 16 to 20 minutes. Serve warm.
