    How to Make It


    1. Chop the tips off the spring onions and then slice lengthways. Then cut the strips in half
    2. Chop the squid and the prawns in small pieces or prepared the seafood mix
    3. Pour a large egg into a 1 Cup sized measuring cup. Add 2 tbsp rice wine and then top up with cold water. This step makes it easy for you to get the right consistency. Put the strong flour in a bowl and add a pinch of sea salt. Add the egg mix to the bowl and mix them completely with a whisk.
    4. Or You can use the panfrying powder.
    5. On a low heat, pour a little vegetable oil into a frying pan and spread it all over the pan. When the oil is heated a little, lay a bed of spring onions all over the pan.
    6. Pour the batter onto the spring onions. Make sure you don’t put too much batter on it or the pancake will be too thick. We want a thin and crispy pancake.
    7. Lay the chopped carrots, squid and king prawns evenly around the pancake.
    8. Keep cooking the pancake over a low heat. 1-2 minutes later, add an egg on top of the pancake. Break the yolk with a spatula and spread the egg around a bit.
    9. When the bottom is browned and cooked, flip the pancake over using a plate.
    10. Cook the pancake until it is a little browned. Remove from the pan and put on a plate and set aside.
    11. Now, we are going to make the dipping sauce. In a small bowl, put the chopped onion, soy sauce, sugar, vinegar, water, and chopped chillies and mix them up.This dipping sauce tastes A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Cut your pancake into bite size pieces and dip in this sauce. Bon appetite!!
