  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (for cooking)

  • Divide the dough into 4 equal parts.
  • Roll out one piece of dough into a circle about 8 inches in diameter.
  • Brush with a thin layer of sesame oil and sprinkle with salt.
  • Spread a quarter of the chopped scallions evenly over the circle.
  • Roll the dough into a tight log, then coil it into a spiral.
  • Flatten the spiral with a rolling pin to form a pancake about 1/4-inch thick.
  • Repeat with the remaining pieces of dough.
  • Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Cook each pancake for 2–3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and crispy.
