In ancient times, this kind of food can only be eaten during the festival, but with the change of time, it finally became popular all over the country and became a unique Chinese street food that is rare in the public life.

Chinese puff pancake is delicious and easy to make. Grandma said that in addition to the sauce is very important, there are 3 skills to master. The first point is to knead the flour with warm water. The inner layer of the flour will be very soft even if it is cold. Second, when kneading the flour, add a small amount of baking powder to make the outer layer of the pancake fluffy, fragrant and crispy.

Different flours have different water absorption rates. If your kneaded dough is hard, you can add a little more water. If it is a little sticky, add a little flour.

3. After 15 minutes, you can easily knead the dough until it is smooth. After smoothing, continue to cover with plastic wrap and relax for 20 minutes.

4. During the dough relaxation, we will make the ingredients and cut the onions, garlic and chives into small pieces.
