Prep time: 12 mins
Cook time: 15 mins
Total time: 27 mins
  • 4 oz. pa'i'ai
  • ½ c. or more (wheat or gluten free blend) flour or biscuit mix (preferred)
  • ¼ c. or more water
  • ½ c. chopped green onions
  • Chili Oil
  • Sea salt
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Crumble pa’i'ai on a floured surface. Knead in flour and water until a smooth dough forms. Add small amounts of flour and water if necessary while kneading the dough to get a final dough that is not sticky.
  2. If the pa'i'ai is hard and crumbly, chop it up and crumble it in small pieces. Bring the water to a boil in a small pot. Add the crumbled pa'i'ai and turn the heat down to medium low. As the pa'i'ai softens, use a potato masher to mash it smooth. Turn off the heat and scoop it into a mixing bowl to cool down. Once it is lukewarm, knead in the flour until a smooth dough forms. Add extra flour/water as needed to get a final dough that is not sticky.
  3. Knead in the green onions. Roll dough out ½" thick. Use 1-1/2" to 2" cutters to cut out biscuits and place them on a baking sheet. Drizzle the biscuit tops with chili oil and sprinkle lightly with sea salt.
  4. Bake for 12-16 minutes, or until cooked through. Cooking times may vary according to how much flour and water has been added to the dough.
