Muah Chee 麻糍

70 comments


Muah Chee 麻糍 is originated in Southern China. It is a steamed sticky dough basically made of glutinous flour, cut in small pieces and coated with sugar and fine or crushed roasted peanuts and sometimes also with toasted sesame added. When I saw Mikko and Shan made this easy Muah Chee 麻糍 two weeks ago, I told myself I must try it as this is one of my favorite childhood snacks. I will definitely be making this again because the chewy of the glutinous rice flour together with the crunchy toasted peanuts make this Muah Chee 麻糍  so yummy  and everyone at home loved it!



Here is the recipe to prepare sticky dough
250g Glutinous rice flour
3 tbsp Caster sugar
375g Water (about 1 1/2 cup)

30g Sugar & 80g ground or crushed roasted peanuts - mix together (add more sugar if you prefer)

Method:
  • Grease some vegetable oil on a 7 inch round cake tin.
  • Bring water to boil in a wok or steaming pot and steam the greased cake tin over high heat. 
  • Mix glutinous rice flour and 3 tbsp sugar together in a large bowl and gradually add water into it.
  • Stir batter till smooth and pour batter into the prepared cake tin.
  • Cover lid and steam for 40 minutes over medium low heat.
  • Leave cooked sticky dough to cool.
  • Grease your teaspoon with little oil,  scoop sticky dough and drop it on the mixed sugar and peanuts, coat well and serve.
Kitchen note: You can keep the unfinished portion of the cooked dough in the fridge (without coating with the peanuts) -  cover with  foil, the sticky dough is still very soft and chewy even for a day or two.

Enjoy!

  2. I love this - this is an old time favorite. Difficult to make or not? I want to make some to satisfy myselt. Sometimes those sold outside the peanuts not fresh one.

    小鲸~ 把吃不完的面团,用锡纸盖着,放进冰箱就可以了。隔一两天,要吃的时候,在粘上花生粉和糖。。还是一样好吃。

  20. I don't think I ever tried this. Looks delicious with lots of nuts! It sounds like mochi in Japanese and texture looks like mochi too! I think Japanese mochi comes from this...maybe?

  24. I remember having muah chee in Penang many years ago. Looking at this making me crave for some :(

    ReplyDelete
  25. There is a stall near my house which sells very nice mua chee, I used to buy from there very often last time. Now I realized it's not hard to make our own version :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Me also make muah chee once using microwave, but the mouth feeling is not as good as the stall bought one. Well, rather buy than making my own now since i back to M'sia as my daughter is allergic to nut and my hubby is nt a big fan of muah chee.

    Anyway, tkz for sharing. ur muah chee look really yummy.

  27. What a treat this is Anncoo! We ate this too many moons ago with toasted sesame seeds or shredded coconut. I will surely try it with peanuts this time. They look absolutely irresistible! Thanks for making this Cheers!!!

  35. Ann, this is also one of my favorites! You have no idea how much I miss this. I will have to make this ASAP. I wanted to make your zebra cake first but now I think I'll have to make this one first as it is also gluten-free. Have to go to the store to get some peanuts tomorrow.

  43. @Nami @ Just One Cookbook

    Nami, The texture is quite similar to mochi. You can even add filling inside the dough and coat with sesame powder, equally delicious.

  62. Anncoo, thank you very much for sharing your NO FAILURE Muah Chee recipe! I've prepared this simple steamed Muah Chee twice and the results are consistent - VERY GOOD! I like its smooth and chewy texture. In the past, I had to wait till there's a pasar malam (night market) before I can taste Muah Chee. Now, with your generous sharing, I can prepare Muah Chee anytime I want. True to your sharing, it can be stored in fridge and stay soft and chewy for more than a day. My colleagues and neighbours love my Muah Chee because of your culinary gift! Thank you once again!

  63. love how simple your recipe is. but i have a query. why do we need to steam the pan first?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Hi Viv, Steaming the pan first is to prevent the cooked dough sticks to the pan.

    2. TQ for your prompt reply, ann. lots of recipes to try here!
