Serves: 5 Prep Time: Cooking Time: Nutrition facts: 200 calories 20 grams fat


For dough:

  • 2.5 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup hot water (+ 1 tbsp if needed)
  • 1/4 cup room temperature water
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Lots of scallions
  • Oil
  • 1/2 tbsp five-spice powder

For roux:

  • 1/2 oil
  • 1/2 all-purpose flour


  1. Combine flour, sugar, and salt in a bowl. Add in hot water slowly while stirring, then mix in room temperature water while continuing to stir.
  2. Gently knead to form dough and continue kneading on a floured surface for 10 minutes.
  3. Put the dough in a bowl and cover with a wet towel, rest for 30 minutes or more. (An hour would be even better if you have the patience!)
  4. Chop scallions and make the roux by mixing oil and flour in a saucepan, continue to mix over medium-low heat until thickened into a paste. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
  5. Roll out dough into a log shape and divide it into five portions.
  6. Roll out one piece of dough to as thin as possible, and brush on the roux. Sprinkle on scallions and five-spice powder.
  7. Roll dough tightly into a log shape, then take one end of the dough and roll again onto itself to form a pinwheel shape. Gently flatten and brush on a thin layer of oil.
  8. Let rest for 20 minutes, or repeat steps for the remaining dough.
  9. Roll out dough to as thin as possible and pan fry each side until golden brown! You can sprinkle salt on at the end if you'd like too.
