Muah Chee (Sticky Glutinous Snack)

Its the first weekend of the New Year, and there are more work to be done in the following weeks. Chinese New Year is coming soon, what are you planning to bake this year? Oh me...there'll be some cookies to be done and also some cakes to bake. Hopefully everything will go smoothly as I've planned...:)
Well, today's post is a simple one. This was made when my hubby and I suddenly thought of supper last 2 days, and I've made this kueh the very last minute since I still have some roasted ground peanuts in the kitchen.

Recipe was adapted from one of my collection books. First attempt and it's beautifully done! (not that I'm smart, it was just easy). Have a look at the ingredients and can do it too!

Here's the recipe...
150g glutinous rice flour
30g tapioca starch
1 & 1/2 cups water
30g sugar
1 cup toasted peanuts (grinded) with some sugar added.

~ Mix rice flour and tapioca flour together with water.
~ Pour into a plate or mould which has been brushed with oil.
~ Place in the steamer to steam over medium heat for about 15 minutes.
~ While its still warm, place the dough in a plastic bag and add sugar. Knead till the dough texture is chewy.
~ Then tear into small pieces and coat with grinded peanuts.

Here's the dough after kneading, the texture should be chewy.

Coated with peanuts. The dough can be teared into any sizes as desire.

See the texture from here? Yummy. This is definetley a good recipe to keep and it can be done in minutes! Try it out then you'll see.

Happy Weekend!!

  3. Yum! One of my all time favorite desert! I remember last time my mum made it , I would ask her to cut the muah ji smaller, so when I eat each mouth, I get more peanut coating and not having to eat too much muah ji, lol! Hope you are doing well my friend. Btw, still haven't confirm coming up to KL yet as we have a wedding dinner to attend the weekend we plan to go....
