Main Ingredient





  • 5 cups flour
  • 1 ½ cups boiling water
  • 1 ½ tbsp cold water
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 tbsp unsalted butter softened
  • 2 large bunches green onions thinly sliced (about 30)
  • vegetable oil for frying
  • ¾ cup San-J Thai Peanut Sauce


  • Sift the flour into a large mixing bowl and add the boiling water, mixing well.  Add the cold water and knead the dough to form a firm ball.  Cover and let stand for 15 minutes.
  • Place the dough on a lightly oiled surface.  Knead several more times and then divide into 6 equal portions.  Roll out each portion into a 7-inch circle, using a lightly oiled rolling pin.  
  • Season each round with salt and pepper to taste.  Spread each round with the softened butter.  Sprinkle about 1/4 cup of the sliced onions on each round. 
  • Heat a heavy, flat frying pan until hot.  Add 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil.  Reduce the heat to low.  Fry each cake for 8 minutes, turning once after 4 minutes, until golden brown.  Drain the cakes on paper towels.  
  • To serve, place each cake on an individual appetizer plate and drizzle with 2 tablespoons of San-J Thai Peanut Sauce.  Serve immediately.
