You can't grill a duck without making some Chinese pancake to serve it in! These are extremely simple to make and authentic.
Servings: 12 piece
- 190 grams all purpose flour
- 160 grams water boiling
- pinch salt
- canola oil
- Measure the flour into a bowl and add the pinch of salt; mix.
- Slowly pour the boiling water into the flour, mixing with a pair of chopsticks.
- When a dough ball forms and is cool enough to handle, knead the dough for 8-10 minutes, or until smooth.
- Place the dough ball into an oiled bowl, cover, and allow to rest at room temperature for 1 hour.
- Roll the dough into a rope and divide into 12 equal pieces.
- Roll each piece into a ball and flatten into a disk.
- Brush six of the disks with canola oil and place a dry disk onto each.
- While you work, cover the disks to prevent them from drying out.
- Use a rolling pin to roll out each disk pair into an 8" round.
- Heat a frying pan over medium-low heat.
- Place a rolled pancake into the pan and cook until air bubbles between the layers begin to form, about 45 seconds. The cooked side should have light brown spots.
- Flip and cook the other side for another 45 seconds. Remove to a warm bowl covered with a towel.
- When the pancake is cool enough to handle, separate the two layers.
