     Jianbing is a traditional Chinese street food similar to crepes. It is a type of bing generally eaten for breakfast and hailed as "one of China's most popular street breakfasts."The main ingredients of jianbing are a batter of wheat and grain flour, eggs and sauces. It can be topped with different fillings and sauces such as baocui (thin and crispy fried cracker), ham, chopped or diced mustard pickles, scallions and coriander, chili sauce or hoisin sauce depending on personal preference. It is often folded several times before serving.
Jianbing is now spreading to the West in cities such as New York City, Seattle, Chicago and San Francisco, sometimes with modifications for Western tastes.
History
Jianbing originated in the Northeast of China. Its history can be traced back 2,000 years to Shandong province during the Three Kingdoms period (220–280 AD). According to legends, chancellor Zhuge Liang encountered the problem of feeding his soldiers after they lost their woks. He ordered the cooks to mix water with wheat flour to make the batter, then spread it on shields, or flat copper griddles over a flame. The dish raised the soldiers’ morale and helped them win the battle. After that, jianbing was passed down through generations in Shandong province and gradually spread to different parts of China.
Types
The traditional jianbing originated in Shandong and flourished in Tianjin jianbing is basically made of flour and eggs with different fillings and sauces. As there are many variations depending on tastes and preferences in different regions, many cities have their own versions of jianbing. Shandong-style jianbing and Tianjin-style jianbing are the two most common versions of jianbing in China.
Shandong-style jianbing
Jianbing from Shandong province tastes crispy and harder as its batter is formed from the flour mixture that mainly contains coarse grains such as corn, sorghum and millet. In the old days, people had Shandong-style jianbing mainly by rolling it with scallions or serving it with meat soup. Nowadays, the variety of fillings are richer and differ according to one’s preference, for example, sweet potatoes, lettuce and pork are also used as fillings.
Tianjin-style jianbing
Jianbing from Tianjin is a transformation of the jianbing originated in Shandong. It is also called jianbing guozi and Guozi refers to its youtiao stuffing. Tianjin-style jianbing tastes softer as its crepe is made of green mung bean flour, which contains less gluten. Also, Tianjin-style jianbing is topped with youtiao (fried dough stick, similar to churros in Spanish and Latino-American cuisine), while the Shandong-style one sold by street vendors is usually topped with baocui (crispy fried cracker).
How to make?
Ingredients
2 tablespoons millet flour
2 tablespoons soy milk
1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon water, if needed
1 tablespoon Chinese black bean sauce
1 teaspoon water
1/2 teaspoon Asian chile pepper sauce, or to taste
1 teaspoon water
cooking spray
1 egg, beaten
1/2 green onion, sliced
1 tablespoon torn fresh cilantro leaves
2 whole crackers
Directions
1. Whisk together millet flour, soy milk, and vegetable oil in a bowl to make a batter the consistency of heavy cream. Add a teaspoon of water to thin the batter, if necessary.
2. Mash the black bean sauce in a small bowl with 1 teaspoon of water to make it easy to spread. In a separate small bowl, mix the hot chili sauce with 1 teaspoon of water. Set the sauces aside.
3. Spray a large skillet generously with cooking spray, and heat over medium-low heat. Pour the batter into the skillet, and spread evenly to make a thin crepe. Cook the crepe for 1 to 2 minutes, until firm. Pour the egg evenly over the crepe. Cook an additional 1 to 2 minutes, until the egg is set. Sprinkle the crepe with green onion slices and cilantro leaves, pressing them firmly into the cooked egg.
4. Flip the crepe and spread with bean sauce and chili sauce. Place the crackers in the center of the crepe, leaving about 1/4 inch of space between the two crackers. Flip the top third of the crepe down over the crackers, flip the bottom third up, and then fold the crepe in half so the crackers are stacked on top of each other in a tidy package. Serve hot.
Food mix

Tips
1. The noodles of the pancakes are made of mung bean powder and flour. It can also be used only with flour, but the taste of the finished product will be slightly sticky. The mung bean powder is used more because the muscle strength is not enough, the skin is easy to break, it is not easy to operate, so the mung bean powder Use up to 1/3.
