Fry for approx. 6 mins. until the underside is cooked, spread some of the filling and sprouts on one side, carefully fold the empty side over the top, cook the pancake for a further 2 mins. Make seven more pancakes using the remainder of the batter and filling. Serve with the dip and spring onions.
