What you need:

2 cups plain flour
1 cup boiling water
1/4 tsp salt
sesame oil
5 spring onions, sliced finely
oil for frying

What you do:

In a bowl, mix together the flour, salt and boiling water until it all comes together. Carefully use your hands to then knead the ball of dough until it’s smooth, about 5-10 minutes. If it’s still too hot, let it cool for a bit before starting to knead. Wrap with plastic wrap and set aside for at least 30 minutes; keep it in the fridge if you’re leaving it for longer.

Divide the rested dough ball into 6 pieces. Roll each piece into a flat, thin round, dusting with flour if the dough is sticking. Brush the surface of the round with sesame oil and then sprinkle over a sixth of the chopped spring onion. Roll the round tightly like a swiss roll, with the oil and spring onions on the inside. Curl this now tubular dough piece into a tight snail shape, tucking the end underneath.

Now roll this snail shaped piece of dough out into a round about 5 inches in diameter. Pieces of spring onion will start falling out but don’t worry – just show them who’s boss and jam them back into the dough. Repeat with the rest of the dough pieces (I start to fry at the same time as rolling them out).

Heat a frying pan (mine is nonstick) over medium heat. Add about a tablespoon of oil and fry each pancake on both sides until golden brown, draining on kitchen paper when cooked; repeat with all the pancakes.

Cut into wedges and serve.

What you need:

6 large eggs
7 oz / 200g  ham sliced into small thin pieces
4 0z /100g fan mushrooms
2 spring onions
2 oz / 60g grated cheese
Milk
Pepper to taste

What you do:

Wipe the mushrooms clean and chop into small pieces, slice the spring onions.

Using a fork, beat the eggs together with a little milk and season with black pepper, add the grated cheese.

Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan and add the ham and mushrooms, cook for a few minutes until the mushrooms are tender.

Add the eggs and the spring onions.

Cook over a high heat, and using a spatula pull the edges of the omelette into the middle tilting the pan as you go so the liquid eggs run into the space. Do this for a few minutes until only a tiny bit of liquid is left in the centre. Remove from the pan and allow to rest for a few minutes (the remaining runny bit of egg will finish off cooking)
