Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes

Servings: 8 people

Preparation

1. Sift the flour into a large bowl. Add the egg and pour in the milk, whisking as you go, to create a smooth batter. Stir through the spring onion and chives.

2. Heat the oil in a large nonstick frying pan over a medium heat. Pour in a quarter of the batter and swirl it around the pan so it thinly and evenly covers the base. Cook for 2-3 mins until just golden.

3. Loosen the edges of the pancake with a palette knife and flip it over. Cook for a further 2-3 mins until the underside is golden. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat to make 3 more pancakes.

4. Mix the dipping sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Divide the noodles, vegetables and ham between the pancakes, then fold over the edges, roll up and cut each one in half. Serve with the dipping sauce.

Tip: Swap the ham for roast chicken, small prawns or cooked mushrooms.
