Cong You Bing (Scallion Pancake)

I had Cong You Bing or Scallion Pancakes in Taiwan many times. Students in schools used to invite me to their classes to taste and teachers would encourage me to have. A very delectable cuisine that is loved by many in Taiwan. Some make it from scratch but most buy from stores. They would just bring it to class and heat and enjoy having it. I’m sharing the recipe #MadhubishsKitchen
