‘Cong You Bing’ Breads
Otherwise known as scallion pancakes, ‘Cong You Bing’ Bread are Chinese, savoury baked goods made from dough instead of batter. Using Kara’s dough balls, Cong You Bing are great baked goods to serve as a quick and cost-effective sharing starter.
500g Kara dough balls
Bunch of spring onions, finely sliced
Vegetable oil, for pan-frying or griddling
Slices of spring onion and sesame seeds to serve (optional)
Finely chop the spring onions and mix them into the dough. Cut the dough into eight equal pieces and roll into small, circular flatbreads.
Fry the flatbreads in a deep-sided pan or griddle for a few minutes on each side until the pieces of bread are cooked through and are golden brown.
Decorate with more slices of spring onion and a sprinkle of sesame seeds. Serve as a side dish or as an accompaniment to the main meal.
Top tip: To create a tasty sharing starter, serve Cong You Bing breads with a sweet chilli dipping sauce and/or a light soy sauce.
Storage & handling
Kara’s Doughballs should be stored frozen at -18°C or below. Once defrosted, do not refreeze.
Take the required amount of dough balls from the freezer and place 2″ (5cm) apart on a baking tray. To avoid the doughball skinning, cover with a lightly greased film and place in the refrigerator overnight.
Once defrosted, store in the fridge (5°C) and consume within two days.
