  6. Starting from the long end, roll the dough up like a long burrito.
  7. Coil the dough and allow to rest for 20 minutes, covered.
  8. Before cooking, press the dough lightly to flatten and get a round pancake.
  9. Preheat a nonstick pan,add 1 tbsp. oil, then place the scallion pancake and cook over low heat until brown, flip, cover with the lid and cook for 2-3 minutes on low heat.
  10. Remove the lid, add 1 tbsp. vegetable oil around the sides of the pancake and fry until golden brown, flipping halfway.
  11. Using a pizza cutter or kitchen scissors, cut the pancake into wedges. Serve immediately with any dipping sauce of your choice.
