Sesame-Cilantro Scallion Pancakes

This is a good recipe and I love dipping the wedges in Ginger Soy Dipping Sauce. I think next time I will make them a bit thicker.

2 cups flour
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro
1 1/2 tbsp black sesame seeds
3/4 tsp salt
1 cup water
2 tbsp sesame oil
oil for frying

In a bowl, combine the flour, green onions, cilantro, sesame seeds, and salt. Add the water and sesame oil and mix to form dough. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and divide into 4 pieces. Roll each piece of dough into circles, about 1/4 inch thick.
Heat a thin layer of oil in a skillet on medium heat. Fry the pancakes in batches until golden brown on both sides, turning once, about 3 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels and keep warm while you cook the rest, adding more oil as needed. To serve, cut the pancakes into wedges and serve hot.
