    Pan can be purchased at lots of stores like the one below:




    Recipe:

    3/4 cup + 1 Tbsp. flour
    2 Tbsp. semolina flour
    1 cup water
    2 eggs, lightly beaten for topping
    black sesame
    Chili sauce,Soybean sauce
    Scallions, green onion thinly sliced


    1. Whisk together flour, 2 eggs, and water together until well-combined and lump free.


    2. Spray a large skillet generously with cooking spray, or brush with a bit of vegetable oil, and heat over medium-low heat. Pour 3-4 tablespoons of batter onto the middle of the pan and spreads out the batter coats the surface evenly to make a thin crepe


    3. Pour some egg evenly over the crepe and then sprinkle with scallions and green onion, black sesame. Cook the pancake for about 1 to 2 minutes, until the egg is set.


    4. Flip the crepe, brush with chili sauce soybean sauce and cook for about 30 seconds, and then put the fried wonton skin or fried bread sticks on top, the last step is to fold crepe into quarters and serve. 


    Tips:
    1. Originally Chinese Crepes (Also called "Jian Bing") is made with mung bean flour, but it is not easy to find sometimes,  so you can use plain flour instead.
    2. If you break the crepe a little bit while spreading, don’t worry, the egg that you are going to use is going to fix it.
    3. I used 2 deep-fried wonton skin for each Jian Bing, you can use more as long as the crepe can still be folded together.
