For the Dough:

  • 1 cup All purpose flour*

  • 1 teaspoon Oil

For the filling:

Make the Dough:

  • In a mixing bowl, combine all-purpose flour, sweet rice flour, sugar, salt and yeast. Mix well.

Make the Filling:

  • Combine all the ingredients for the filling in a small bowl.

Make the Pancakes:

  • Generously flour the work surface and divide the dough into 8 pieces. Take a piece of the dough in the palm, roll it into a ball and flatten it lightly.
  • Put about 1~2tbsp filling in the middle of the dough. Press lightly with a spoon and pull the dough over the filling. Form into a ball and flatten it lightly.
  • Heat 3~4tbsp oil in a nonstick pan, place the pancakes on the pan and cook on medium flame for 2~3 minutes or until the bottom is golden brown and crispy. Gently flip and cook on the other side for 2~3 minutes.
  • Serve right away!!
