Dan Bing recipe?

Pei | Feb 2, 200908:07 AM     9

The internets seem pretty silent on this topic, aside from one Chinese recipe that I can't read and a few YouTube videos that don't have recipes.

Does anyone have a recipe or general idea of how to cook a Shanghai/Taiwanese street food and breakfast staple called dan bing? It's basically an egg crepe.

I know the dough for the crepe is a combination of water, corn or tapioca starch, and water. The crepe is poured out, and when it's half cooked a beaten egg is poured on top and the whole crepe is flipped and then rolled up.

I've gotten a reasonably close approximation with half a cup flour, a heaping tablespoon of corn starch, and enough water to make the batter runny (rather than like pancake batter). But I definitely don't have it down to a science (yet)!
