Recipe : Muah Chee08:46
Muah Chee - Muay Chee (mochi) is steamed, sticky dough made from glutinous flour, it is gooey and cut into small pieces and coated with finely crushed peanuts and sugar. It's usually selling at a dollar a serve. I couldn't find any Halal muah chee in Kedah, but at Ipoh Perak (DH's hometown), there are chinese muslim hawkers selling this snack everywhere. Have always wanted to try to make this and when I saw this Muah Chee recipe from one of the cooking website, I gave it a go. The ingredients and method is fairly simple especially when you can
Overall, my muah chee turned out not bad and I was pretty pleased.
The recipe goes like this...
1 cup glutinous rice flour
1 1/2 cup water
1-2tsb shallot oil
1 cup peanut, roasted and ground finely
50gm sugar - depend on your taste, you can add little by little until you reach your desired sweetness.
Fried 1 shallot with 1-2 tsp oil until brown. let it cool and set aside.
Whisk together flour , water and shallot oil. The texture should be runny and soupy.
Pour the mixture in a microwave save bowl and microwave on high for about 7 minutes
The cooked dough should be like this, soft and goey.
Using kitchen scissor, cut into small pieces and drop into peanut/sugar mixture
But the easy way is to remove the big piece of the dough from bowl, and plock into peanut/sugar mixture
Simply roll it in sugar/peanut mixture.
And cut into small pieces using scissor. And roll them again
There you go... tataraaaa.. it took less than 30 minutes to prepare this snack.
Enjoy while it still warm. :)
