Muah Chee 麻糍 is a Southern Chinese (Fujianese) dessert, is a steamed sticky dough made of glutinous rice flour which cut into small pieces and coated with lots of crush peanut and sugar.
Muah Chee can be found in South East Asia, especially Malaysia and Singapore. This is a childhood treat for me when I’m little. Lots of recipe require to steam the dough for 45mins. But this recipe, which was shared by my friend Lorna Tan, is a short cut of making this supper soft muah Chee, it require no steaming at all and can be ready in under 15mins, the Camel brand ground peanut powder already has got sugar in there, so is just pour and serve! This dessert is very good for entertaining guest as it is super fast to prepare and yummy! All you need is glutinous rice flour and the peanut powder!
1 cup of glutinous rice flour
1 cup of water
1/2 tbsp of fried shallot oil – see note below
1 tablespoon toasted white sesame seed
1 tablespoon fried shallot
100g Camel brand Ground Peanut Powder
Pour 50g of the peanut powder onto the serving plate, set aside
cook over medium low heat. Fold the mixture from the sides to the middle of the pan with a spatula till it forms a soft, wobbly dough. Lower the heat and continue to cook the dough till the sides are clean and form into a ball
Note: fried shallot oil can be obtained by frying sliced shallots in oil till shallots become golden brown, drain the fried shallots and reserve the oil
