Muah Chee (peanuts glutinous rice balls) 麻芝

I have been wanted to try making this Muah Chee (cooked glutinous rice coated with ground peanuts) for a longer time. But i was keep delaying because have to prepare the roasted peanuts which is quite tedious process(roast, remove skin and process). Anyway i have no excuses this time as my mother gave me some leftover ground roasted peanuts that she prepared during CNY for ang ku kueh making.

With the earlier experience of making daifuku mochi, so this time i have no problem to handle the sticky cooked glutinous rice dough.

Using a sharp scissor to cut the muah chee, it was so easy to handle ..

I like to enjoy like Penang style, add some fried shallot with it.

I would said the homemade muah chee has no difference in taste if compare to store-bought.

Muah Chee 麻芝

150g glutinous rice flour
225g water
2tsp caster sugar
A pinch of salt
1tbsp shallot oil (fry 3 shallots with cooking oil)

75g ground roasted peanuts
30g caster sugar
Fried shallot

  1. Add glutinous rice flour , sugar and salt in a mixing bowl, pour in water and shallot oil then stir to mix well.
  2. Pour batter in a glass bowl, steam over boiling water over high heat for 15mins.
  3. While steaming, prepare the topping by mix ground roasted peanuts and sugar on a big tray.
  4. Once muah chee dough is done and slightly cool, use a silicone scraper to transfer the dough on the peanuts mixture.
  5. Use a sharp scissor, cut muah chee into small bite size pieces and coat with peanuts mixture.
  6. Top with fried shallots and enjoy!

Ohhhh I miss muasi or palitaw ( in Filipino ) ! We have it back home as well but I think instead of steaming the dough , we form it into small balls and flatten it then boil until it floats on top :D I saw this kind snack food last time during one of the CNY fair here and wonder what it was called , now I know :D Your sweet and savoury version with the fried shallots sounds interesting !
