Chives Pancakes

Well, dunno what to have for dinner tonight. When it comes to think of the menu, it really cracking my head. Wondering around the market juz now.....then i saw some fresh chives. "Chives Pancakes" comes to mind. We'll have it tonight. Its a traditional recipe from my grandmother i think. My mum used to make tis when i was a little kid. You may say its only a pancake, can we have it for dinner...?? Of course "YES"...we can eat alot, cause its too delicious...YUMMY!

3 cups All Purpose Flour
1 cup Dried Shrimps (Soaked,finely diced)
1.5 cups Chives (Cut into 1")
1.5 tsps Salt
2 tsps Five Spice Powder
A dash of Pepper

**Water (Room temperature)

~ Mix the flour, salt, pepper and five spice powder in a bowl, add in water slowly until gets a quite watery texture.
~ Add in the soaked & diced dried shrimps and chives.
~ Mix well, then taste a little of the mixture before frying (you may need a stronger taste, so can add alittle more salt or five spice powder or pepper)
~ Heat up a non-stick frying pan with 1 tbsp of cooking oil.
~ Spoon some mixture on the pan and flatten it (Otherwise the pancake will be too thick)
~ Panfry both sides until cook/golden brown.
~ Serve it plain or with some chili sauce.
