- 1 large egg
- 1 cup all-purpose flour

Mix better ingredients well in a bowl or large cup. Heat about 1
tbsp of cooking oil in a non-stick pan. Saute the white parts of
the green onions in the pan. Remove the white parts of the green onions and discard.
Turn heat to medium, pour about half of the batter into the pan depending on the size of the pan you're using.
Lightly tilt the pan for the batter to cover tha pan.
The top of the pancake should start to bubble after 1 or 2 minutes.
Wait for another 1-2 minutes then flip the pancake and continue frying the other side until almost golden brown. This should be easy to do with a good non-stick pan.
Repeat the frying process with the rest of the batter.
Cut the pancakes into wedges for easier serving.
Finally, mix all the ingredients for the dipping sauce in a separate bowl and do a taste test.
Add more sugar if desired.
