2. Whisk the flour, soy sauce, pepper and 125ml water together to give a smooth batter.

3. Combine ¼ of the green salad onion mix with ¼ batter, trying to keep all the pieces parallel. Heat a little oil in a frying pan, and fry the mixture, spreading it out to give a rough rectangle of approximately 10 x 14cm. Cook for 2 minutes, turning halfway through.
