    Tyrrells chips (sea-salted favor) taste exactly like Cuibing in the chinese pancake

    can you recreate this video?

    well I guess when I instagrammed my brother in law's "'jian bing" I was wrong. It was a different bing. Bing is basically bread in Chinese. And I just wikipediaed a few different bings and guessed at that one.
    Anyone know what that crunchy sesame seed bing is called?

  14. Christiana Jobim

    In Rio they make them. also it is the same though of the "pastel"we have here

    Have you ever heard of qian Chen bing? If you have could you try doing a video on it?

    Great recipe. Here are some things I've added to get my own personal version: add more water to the batter to make it more liquid (similar to crepe batter). Use medium/high heat and use a flat pan. Once you put in the batter in the pan, spread the batter and put the rest back to your bowl in order to get a thin jianbing.

    Unfortunately, I haven't had the chance to taste an 'authentic' jianbing yet, but I can tell that this recipe is pretty delicious.

    Keep up the great work, Andong!

    isn't it only "jianbing guozi" when you wrap your jianbing around a youtiao? I didn't grow up in China so someone please let me know lol

  22. Davina gaming Pro

    Please. Too much talk

  23. James Pickard

    Honestly this brings back a lot of memories, I want to make these so badly!

  24. Tigerius Svarne

    Looks so good.

  25. Sunanda Adhikary

    You mean it is the chinese version of indian dosa

  26. Vivian Lu

    My favorite sauce is 甜面酱 sweet soy
    Bean sauce, you can find it in Asian supermarkets. I remember I grew up in Shanghai, every week we would buy 煎饼果子 it’s my favorite breakfast. But when I move to US, the pancake is so expensive here and the cracker isn’t right. I would definitely try making it, thank you for your receipt!
