Chewy scallion omelette pancake rolls

Chewy Scallion Omelette Pancake Rolls is another of my family’s favourite. It is also a very popular Chinese dish made using the Chewy Chinese Pancakes. Occasionally we take this for breakfast but most of the time it is part of our evening meal. It goes very well with the Turkey Mince Tomato Egg Soup ….perfect combination. We also love it with a mixture of balsamic vinegar and soya sauce with some sesame oil added as a dip. It is even great as a snack. It makes a great party food too.

These pancakes may sound quite similar to the Chewy Chinese Scallion Pancakes but the method of doing is different and eggs are used here. To make these delicious pancake rolls, you need to start off with the hot water dough as in making the chewy Chinese pancakes. Usually, we have leftover pancakes from making wraps and they would be just perfect for making these pancake rolls. The recipe is very simple.

eggs (lightly beaten)
scallion or spring onions (chopped finely)
some salt

Mix the eggs, scallion and salt in a bowl. Heat up some oil in a frying pan. Pour in some of the egg mixture and place a piece of pancake on top. When the egg is cooked, turn over and roll up the pancake with the spatula. Dish it up on to a plate. Cut it into sections and serve hot with your favourite dipping sauce and a bowl of tomato egg soup. This makes for a simple meal and is one of my favourites.

How creative! That’s great for a lunch box, nutritious and delicious.

3hungrytummies  on February 9th, 2010

Very nice! I do the same with roti canai! :)

Divina  on February 9th, 2010

That’s very creative. I love Korean pancakes. I have some leftover batter in the fridge and I’m making them tonight. :) I just love green onions. I think you do too.

Mary  on February 9th, 2010

@Angie@Angie’s Recipes - Thanks very much for lovely compliments and suggestion….lunch box :P I’ll pack some along when I go out. This cold weather is making me hungry so fast :(

@3hungrytummies - Wow….great suggestion. I must make roti canai next and use this method for it…must be very delicious :)

@Divina - Thanks very much for lovely compliment. Korean pancakes…oh..that’s my favourite too. I love the texture. I always buy the ready mix where the texture of the pancakes is very different. I think it’s a mixture of different types of flour in the mix. Yes, I love spring onions ….coriander too. I just love the smell of coriander…so refreshing…mmmm. It makes me happy :D

Sushma Mallya  on February 9th, 2010

Thats a great idea for an yummy breakfast,spring onion must have given such a nice flavour to the omlette…sounds so easy and yum

penny aka jeroxie  on February 9th, 2010

That is roti chanai!! YUMMM! I need curry to go with this.

kristy  on February 9th, 2010

My father is an expert in making chinese pancake! Nowadays, he seldom cook it! Too lazy to do so. I love especially the burnt smell! haha…. When I was little, my brothers & I used to fight for the dark & burnt one…. so delicious! haha… I am actually really exhausted right now. After busy for the past 2 weeks in making the new year goodies. More to go… I’m making ‘Hee Ban’ & ‘Fatt Kuih’ on this coming Friday for new year eve praying, at my in law’s place. After that I’m heading to the North to my parents’ place. It’s a long way drive!

Mary  on February 9th, 2010

@Sushma Mallya - It’s easy to make these. I still have some more leftover pancakes and I’m going to make them again later. I need something light before I go for badminton. Hope to make curry soon to go with it :P

@penny aka jeroxie - Yes….of course curry would be great :D I’m going to make that for Chinese New Year….yum

@kristy - Probably now it’s your children’s turn to fight over for the burnt ones :D Wow…you are really making a lot of CHinese New Year goodies. I have been so busy that I think I won’t be making a lot. Gosh….all those travelling…must be exciting and also challenging. Have fun baking and enjoying the Chinese New Year atmosphere!

Roti n Rice  on February 9th, 2010

Yes, I agree with Angie that it’s great for a lunchbox. I like the way you roll it up. Thanks for the idea. Incidentally, I made tomato egg omelet last night. My boys liked it.

Simply Life  on February 9th, 2010

oh I am just loving all these new ideas!

Tasty Trix  on February 9th, 2010

Oooh, these look so good, I could eat a lot of them!!!

Geoffrey Wu  on February 9th, 2010

Hi Mary,

I must say, the scallion pan-cakes look DAMN delicious! However, is it me but does the pan cake batter look a bit thick? Looks good though!

Happy Eating!

Mary  on February 9th, 2010

@Roti n Rice - Thanks very much. I’m really glad that you boys like the tomato omelette :)

@Simply Life - Thanks very much :) Give a try.

@Tasty Trix - I’ve already eaten a lot! Time for you to catch up :D

@Geoffrey Wu - Geoff, thanks very much :) It’s not batter but hot water dough to make this pancake first, then place it on top of the omelette. Hope you’ll give it a try.

cheah  on February 9th, 2010

These pancakes will make a perfect meal for me. You have great ideas, Mary!

Dhale  on February 9th, 2010

I DEFINITELY need to try this pairing soon. It sounds like the perfect meal!

joylicious  on February 9th, 2010

Gosh I love these scallion pancakes you make, I almost feel as if I can smell them cooking…what torture!

Choclette  on February 9th, 2010

These sound really really good and I really like simple.

Mary  on February 9th, 2010

@cheah - Thanks very much. I have been enjoying it often these days with the tomato egg soup :)

@Dhale - Would love to hear how you get along with it. Have fun cooking and eating :D

@joylicious - So sorry to torture you again :D

@Choclette - Thanks very much :) Hope you try it out soon. It’s simple and delicious.

Sook @ My Fabulous Recipes  on February 9th, 2010

These would be great for lunch or for snack! I just posted Kimchi buchimgae recipe today. I love these pancakes.

Mary  on February 9th, 2010

@Sook - Yes, they are great for lunch or snack…probably any time :P It’s our favourite weekend breakfast and also sometimes part of dinner. Love the Korean kimchi pancakes….another of my favourite.

Natasha - 5 Star Foodie  on February 9th, 2010

My daughter is looking at these omelette pancake rolls and going “mmmm… mmmm…” I’m going to have to make them tomorrow!

rebecca  on February 9th, 2010

lovin the pancake posts lol

SKip to Malou  on February 9th, 2010

I would like to have this for breakfast. I like the combination of the pancake and eggs… and maybe ill sneak in some bacon strips haha!

peteformation  on February 9th, 2010

I like to eat with chilli sauce….especially Kg Koh Garlic Chilli sauce…nice!

Light Delight with TouTou  on February 9th, 2010

haha we use to have this street food all mornings while I was in college ! it adds some crisps inside, or some sausages :-D
but I always feel its so hard to make the hot dough pancake myself, so I use the tortilla instead. Your version looks more like the one I had in college!! LOVE IT and MISS IT!

Mimi  on February 10th, 2010

Looks good to me.

Mary  on February 10th, 2010

@Natasha - 5 Star Foodie - Awww….I love her! She’s adorable :) I hope she likes these pancake rolls.

@Rebecca - Thank you very much :)

@SKip to Malou - I’m sure the bacon will add extra beautiful flavour to it. I would love to try that….yum.

@peteformation - Chili sauce is great….my favourite too :P

@Light Delight with TouTou - Yes, I’m going to try to add extra into it for extra flavour and taste. Great suggestions. Thanks. Wonder how it’s like with tortillas. Well, now you can make lots at home :D

@Mimi - Thanks very much :)

Sarah, Maison Cupcake  on February 14th, 2010

These sound brilliant! My husband has been asking whether he will still get pancakes on Tuesday since I already made so many for Morrison’s in January and I think this idea has given me the incentive to make some more. I love them.

Mary  on February 14th, 2010

@Sarah, Maison Cupcake - Thank you very much. You sure have every good reason to make more pancakes this Tuesday for Pancake Day. This one is savoury so it’s a good change :D Have fun making!
