Chinese Chives Pancake (Thick)

Chinese Chives Pancake (Thick)
Today, I am home all alone.
Son and daughter went to college library to self study 
for coming exam.
Husband went to Kuala Terengganu to fetch his workers.
I cooked this before all of them went out and they said
the taste is great eventhough it is something different from shop.
In fact, this Chinese Chives Pancake is one of my favourite
snacks which my mother cook for my bother and I.
Adapted this recipe from Amy Beh.

If you wanted a thin version, please click here for the recipe.

70g Plain Flour
20g Tapioca Flour
2 tbsp Rice Flour
2 tsp Corn Flour
130 ml Water (room temperature)

50g Chives
1/2 tsp Chicken Stock Granules
1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Pepper
1/4 tsp Sugar
70g Dried Prawn

Chop the Chives.
Wash the Dried Prawns three times and chop finely.

In a non stick pan, pour little bit of oil and heat it up.

Pour in the chopped Dried Prawns and stir fried until 
cooked like the picture below.

Cooked Dried Prawns and keep at one side.

Mix all the dried ingredients until well combined. 
(except for Water, Chives And cooked Dried Prawns)

Pour in the Water slowly and stir with a fork.

Stir until well combined.

Lastly pour in the Chives and cooked Dried Prawns.

Stir until well combined.

(Note  :  I was greedy with the Chives.  I should have
follow the instructions to put only 50g of Chives and
since I do not want to waste the balance of 40g of Chives,
I put all in and it make the batter dry up. But no worry,
the taste is still there.  Next try, will follow exactly 50g of Chives.)

Heat up the non stick pan with little bit of oil and
pour in one ladleful of the batter into the non stick pan.
Once the pancake can be moved, it means you can flip over.

Once you have flipped over, pan fried further until done.
Once done, keep at one side and cook the rest of the batter.

The batter can make 4 pieces of palm size of the 
Chinese Chives Package and if you have more people
to eat, you just need to double the ingredients.
I definitely will make again next week...of course will follow
the recipe exactly ....he he he  :)

Hi! Love the look of this pancake, you put so much chives into it! And so much dried shrimps! yUmmy!
Yeah! It is way too flavorful. Today afternoon snack, I make again but this time without the dried shrimps and reduce chives to 30g. It is also delicious.
Love this dish & looks really tasty ! Well done!
Thank you. If you prefer the pancake to be softer, you just need to add more water. Happy Reading and Cooking.
