This muah chee recipe is the simplest of all but there are readers who do not have a microwave oven. Therefore, I have decided to share another type of pan fried method. This pan fried method is rather fast but it must use a non-stick pan.

In addition, beside the white colored muah chee or flavoured muah chee. You can add pandan leaves to flavor it. In this illustration, I have used red yeast rice powder to make it red colour. Of course you can used all type of colouring including fruit puree like mango, sweet potatoes and etc. However, texture will be less chewy as compared to the traditional muah chee

INTRODUCTION

Muah Chee is basically a type of cooked sticky rice dough coated with sugar, grounded peanuts and sesame seeds. It is  believed to be originated from Southern China and  can be easily found in Singapore and Malaysia stores selling snacks. Traditionally, the sticky rice are steamed for 20-30 minutes (depending on the size of the dough) and become a white coloured sticky dough. This dough is then cut into bite size pieces and generously coated with a mixture of sugar, peanuts and sesame seeds served using a toothpick.

As it is a vegetarian food, it is therefore commonly serve during Chinese religious activities in the temple.

This is a simple recipe  of my own and all this while, I know that microwave can be used in the preparation of this traditional snack. This short cut method have saved lots of time of preparation rather than steaming the glutinous rice cake or muah chee (花生芝麻糍粑)。 I have been using microwave in the preparation of some peanut mochi and have shared my recipe in my Facebook Page here.

Since I am going to dispose half a package of the glutinous rice flour sitting ideally in my kitchen shelf, I have decided to prepare some muah chee as the snack for the family members.
