Making the pancake

Refrain from using water if batter is dry or the pancake will break easily when cooking later. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. In a large pan, drizzle some cooking oil generously and tilt pan to evenly cover pan with oil so batter won’t stick while cooking.

  4. Place pancake on a plate and serve like a pizza or roll it and cut in sushi serving-like size.
