THIN PANCAKES

Ingredients:
Plain flour - 450 gms 
Boiling water - 300 ml
Vegetable oil - 1 tsp
extra flour for dusting

Method:

  • Sift  the flour into mixing bowl, then pour in the boiling water very gently, stirring as you pour.
  • Mix with the oil and knead the mixture into a firm dough.
  • Cover with a damp cloth and let stand for about 30 minutes.
  • Lightly dust a work surface with flour. Knead the dough for about 5-8 minutes,or until smooth, then divide it into 3 equal portions.
  • Roll out each portion into a long "sausage", cut each into 8-10 pieces and roll each into a ball.
  • Using the palm of your hand, press each piece into a flat pancake.
  • With a rolling pin, gently roll each into a 15 cm circle.
  • Heat an ungreased frying pan until hot, then reduce the heat to low and place the pancakes, one at a time, in the pan.
  • Remove the pancakes when small brown spots appear on the underside.
  • Keep under a damp cloth until all the pancakes are cooked.
Thin pancakes are not too difficult to make, but quite a lot of practice and patience needed to achieve the perfect result. If you decide to use ready made pancakes, or are reheating homemade ones, steam them for about 5 minutes, or microwave on high for 1-2 minutes.
