2. In a separate bowl, mix the very cold water with soy sauce.
3. Gradually whisk in the cold water mixture until a smooth batter forms.

5. Add the scallions and optionally chili peppers.
For the dipping sauce

For cooking the pancake

5. Carefully flip the pancake and cook for another 2-3 minutes, or until cooked through.
6. If necessary, add a bit more oil to the pan.
7. Flip again.
