This is a great appetizer to make if you are looking for a dish that cooks up easy and tastes amazing. These cakes are just like enough that they will not spoil your appetite, making them the perfect snack food for your entire family.


3 cups of bread flour
1 cup of boiling water
2 tbsp. of vegetable oil
Pinch of salt and pepper, to taste
1 bunch of green onions, chopped finely
2 tsp. of vegetable oil


Preparation time: 30 minutes
Makes: 40


Using a fork, mix your bread flour and boiling water together in a large sized mixing bowl.

Once you have a nice dough on your hands, knead it into a ball and place it back into your bowl. Cover your bowl with some plastic wrap and let it rest in a dry and warm area for at least 30 to 60 minutes.

After this time evenly divide up your dough into 16 even sized pieces. Roll each piece of dough into a ¼ inch circle that is thick. Then brush each circle with some oil, sprinkle with a dash of salt and pepper, and add in about 1 teaspoon of your chopped green onions.

Roll up each circle like a cigar and pinch the open ends together to seal them.

Then heat up at least 2 teaspoons of oil in a large sized frying pan. Place your cakes into the hot oil and fry them up until they are golden brown in colour. This takes about 2 minutes on each side. Remove from your pan and drain on a few paper towels and serve at once.
