Shanghai Pancake Recipe

Ingredients :

300 g

180 g

4 tablespoons

Batter :

1 cup


1 cup

3 tablespoons

red beans








salt to taste

Method :

To make the paste. Soak the red beans over night. Cook in pressure cooker for 30 minutes. Wash them and pass through a sieve to remove the tough skin. Pour into a calico bag and hang it up so that the water  drips off. Turn out the paste into a frying pan and cook over low heat with sugar and oil. The paste should be smooth and glossy.

To make the batter. Sieve flour and salt into a bowl. Make a well in the center, put the egg and 1/2 cup water in the well and mix to get a smooth batter. Beat the batter for 10 minutes and then add the rest of the water. Let stand for 30 minutes. Fry the pancakes in a hot, greased pan till they are lightly browned on both sides. Turn pancakes onto a plate, spread the bean paste on it and fold the top and bottom over to get a long, rectangular shaped cake.

When all the pancakes have been filled and folded over, heat 2 tablespoons oil in a frying pan and fry each pancake again until well browned. Cut each pancake into 3 cm pieces and serve sprinkled with sesame seeds.

Serves 4-6
