  1. Mix salt with all purpose flour.
  2. Prepare a large mixing bowl. Create a small hole in the center and pour the hot water in. Wait for 10 minutes and then stir in the cold water and vegetable oil. Form a ball, cover and rest for 5 minutes and then knead until very smooth (around 3-5 minutes). The dough should be quite soft. Cover and let rest for 20 to 30 minutes.
  3. After resting, the dough should be quite easy to roll out. Divide into 4 pieces and roll each piece into a large circle. Brush some oil, sprinkle Chinese five spice power and chopped scallion (leave the 1 cm of the edge empty).
  4. Roll into a cylinder. And further roll into the shape of a snail (wide in the center and narrow at the ends). Cover with wet cloth and rest for 10 to 15 minutes. Roll the snail out to another thin circle.
  5. Brush some cooking oil on the pan and place a pancake into the pan. Use medium heat to pan-fry until the surface becomes brown, around 2-3 minutes. And turn over to fry for another 1 to 2 minutes. Use a spatula to press the pancake from time to time, especially the central part to ensure it is evenly fried.
  6. Remove the pancake and cut into wedges.
