Scallion Pancakes

This is the second dish that I made for the International Food Challenge. Scallion pancakes have been on my to-make list for a long time and when I saw them on the list of Cantonese dishes to try, I knew I had to make these.

I stir fried the marinated tofu with veggies & udon noodles and it made for a great lunch this weekend.
