Muah Chee 麻糍
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!

Ooh, I'm allergic to peanuts but these look very tempting and delicious.
tq for sharing. . .
Thanks Melonpan for visiting my site. Hope you'll love this much chee after trying it 🙂
Hi Ann, thank you for sharing the recipe. Just tried and it taste great! More so during this lockdown ! May I ask do I need to steam it again tomorrow after keeping in the refrigerator?
Hi Jessica, you can re-steam it for a few minutes if chilled. Actually I just covered the muah chee with a cling wrap in room temperature for a day. Then coat with the peanuts before consuming.
Thanks Rosita 🙂
Joy ~ yes many told me about adding coconuts, I bet it must be delicious!
Can you use anything besides peanuts? I would like to make this for my sons class but we cannot send anything with peanuts.
Hi Jenae, you can use dessicated coconut and sugar instead of peanuts.
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!

love how simple your recipe is. but i have a query. why do we need to steam the pan first?
TQ for your prompt reply, ann. lots of recipes to try here!
Hi Viv, Steaming the pan first is to prevent the cooked dough sticks to the pan.
Hi Ann, This is a new dish to me so thank you for teaching me about it. Also Thanks for having participated in June's YBR:)
wow that looks very delicous. Now i am hungry T.T
i have book the receipe, i will try it out^^
Very interesting recipe! We use rice flour in our cuisine for desserts as well.
Lena, I didn't bother to fry the peanuts myself. Just bought from the supermarket and it is also very fresh and crunchy.
Thank you Christine 🙂
@michelangelo in the kitchen
Thank you! Shredded coconut sounds yummy, thanks for sharing 🙂
Just saw your post on the YBR roundup! I love love LOVE muah chee and yours look so delicious! Especially with that crust. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you everyone for your lovely comments 🙂
Raquel@Erecipe ~ Thank you for your comment and visiting.

Oh Mary, Maybe a one or two small pieces won't harm (:
Jeannie ~ Maybe you can make some for your sons. They'll love it 🙂
comprehensive a great recipe I loved it, looks very nice, affection and hugs.
Thank you Jessica, is so nice to have you here 🙂
@Biren @ Roti n Rice
Biren, hehee…better make it soon. Hopefully you're not homesick 🙂
That looks great. We have something similar with coconut but I like the take with peanuts.
@JoelynJoelyn, Shan的行程排得满满,很难拿给她。等下次你来,我可以做给你吃 🙂
@~Rachel Hei~Rachel, 这小吃真的很好吃,值得一试。
This remanding me of sweet dumplings..great recipe, and your pictures making my mouth water :)))
@Quay Po CooksYou're welcome Quay Po 🙂 Hope to see your post soon!
@Nami @ Just One CookbookNami, The texture is quite similar to mochi. You can even add filling inside the dough and coat with sesame powder, equally delicious.
My sons love this! never fail to buy some whenever they are in Lot 10 foodcourt…there's a shop this…yous looks so good!
it's like what we call here tikoy,which we usually prepare every Chinese new year, but this has a variation and I like it =)
@Yee ErYee Er, Must try to make this for your hubby..he will love it!
Mochi!!!!! I will die for this Ann. I give you a big bear hug for this recipe!! Bookmarked for sure!
Mmm…my favourite too. Only problem I can't eat too much…difficult to digest which makes me feel sleepy and lazy. Otherwise I would be eating this very often 😀
muah chee i love it…drooling now…
Ann, I always wanted to make my own mochi. Oh yes, will try this out soon. Thanks! Hope you're enjoying your evening.Regards, Kristy
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 🙂
Looks so good and yummy.
I love these homemade versions!!
@Alina—Explora CuisineAlina ~ This is not ordinary rice flour, it is glutinous rice flour.
yummy! I want to eat this with lots of peanuts 🙂
@Yummy BakesChris ~Very easy to make but quite sticky. I bought the grounded peanuts from NTUC, very nice.
Anything with sticky rice is great in my book! I love this and hope to try it soon.
i love muah chee and loh mai chee, only thing is that frying the peanuts unless we can get very nice pre fried ones..
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.
My favourite snacks. I always buy this when saw this at pasar malam 🙂 Yours look yummy!
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?
This is one of my favorite snack. But wonder why I've never made them at home before…hm…Now, I might! LOL, thank's for sharing the recipe. :)Amyhttp://utry.it
Ann …. This is one of my favourite snacks too. Can't help salivating.
Love muah chee! I could have finished the whole batch at one go!
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!!!
