Ingredients

For the pancakes:

  • 300 g plain flour
  • 2 large British free-range eggs
  • 300 ml water
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 0.5 bunch spring onions, finely sliced
  • 1 red pepper, deseeded and thinly sliced
  • 1 chilli, halved, deseeded and thinly sliced
  • 200 g cooked peeled prawns

For the dipping sauce:

  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1 pinch crushed chillies
  • 1 spring onion, washed and finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil

Method

To make the pancakes:

  1. 1

    Sieve the flour into a large bowl. In a jug, whisk the eggs with the water, then whisk them into the flour until smooth. Set aside.

  2. 2

    Heat ½ tablespoon of the vegetable oil in a non-stick 20cm frying pan. Add the sliced spring onions, pepper and chilli and fry for 3 minutes, or until softened. Remove from the pan and transfer to a bowl.

  3. 3

    Add a little more oil to the pan, then tip in a quarter of the vegetables and a quarter of the prawns. Spread evenly over the base, then pour over a quarter of the batter, tilting the pan to spread evenly. Cook over a medium-high heat for 3 minutes.

  4. 4

    Hold a plate over the pancake, then flip the pan, tipping the pancake onto the plate. Slip it back into the pan on the other side and cook for 1 minute until cooked through. Repeat with the rest of the ingredients to make 4 pancakes.

  5. 5

    Cut the pancakes into wedges and serve with the dipping sauce.

To make the dipping sauce:

  1. 1

    Mix together the rice vinegar, light soy sauce, chillies, spring onions, garlic and sesame oil. Set aside.
