	I think what you're talking about is known as Chinese or scallion
pancakes and they're really easy to make.  

	~2/3 c  flour + some more
	~1/3 c  water
	butter/ margarine
	~1/2 c chopped green onions/scallions divided to 3 portions
	3 tablespoons of cooking oil

	In a medium sized bowl, combine 2/3 c flour and 1/3 c water to make a
manage dough.  It's a good idea to start with less water and increase a
tablespoon at a time since I don't know the exact measurements.  The
dough may be a little tough but that's okay.
	Divide the dough into 3 pieces and keep the ones you're not using under
a damp cloth.
	Roll out the dough to a rectangular shape on a lightly floured surface.
NOTE:  the thinner the dough is the more layers you'll get
 	Spread enough margarine to cover surface
	Sprinkle enough salt to cover surface(this depends on personal taste)
	Sprinkle one portion of scallions on dough
	Roll up dough TIGHTLY by the short length, tucking in the scallions
along the way and seal the edge.	
	Coil the dough into a snail shell and seal end.
	Roll out as flat as possible.
	Heat up frying pan with a tablespoon of oil.
	Fry both sides of pancake 'til golden.  The whole thing won't be brown,
only the spots where it's actually touching the pan. 
	Slice and serve immediately when done.  If it's not salty enough, it
can be served with some soy sauce.  Makes 3 individual pancakes.
