  • Heat up the egg frying pan on low heat till hot and add 2 tablespoons of the egg mixture to it. Swirl the egg mixture all over the round pan such that it forms a thin layer of crepe.

  • For deep fried version, after the egg crepe dumplings have cooled down from steaming, deep fried them in very hot cooking oil until golden brown in color.
