The chives in my containers are growing like weed and I can’t eat them fast enough. Some of it has become too tough to eat so I have to cut and throw it away. I will usually add it into my fried noodles , dumplings , prawn fritters and make omelets with it. I remember my mom used to make this pancakes for us during the weekends and we used to eat it with chili sauce. She will usually add some dried shrimps to it but I used fresh shrimps since I don’t have any of it in my pantry. It is simple and easy yet so comforting. You can check out the other type of pancake which I made some time ago. Chive Pancake Rolls
