Thinly slice the scallions. Mix with sesame oil and ½ teaspoon of salt and refrigerate.
Mix the flour and ½ teaspoon of salt. Pour the boiling water all at once and mix vigorously.
Then add the cold water gradually and knead until you obtain a soft, smooth and homogeneous dough. Let stand for 45 minutes.
Divide the dough into 10 pieces. Thinly roll each piece of dough to a thickness of about ⅛ inch.
Brush each piece of dough with oil. Sprinkle generously with fresh onions.
Roll each piece of dough to form a long stick, and roll each stick to form a snail shape. Let stand for 30 minutes.
Roll each snail to form ¼ inch thick circles.
Heat a lightly oiled pan over medium heat and cook each crepe 3 to 4 minutes on each side.
