Easy Muah Chee 麻糍

Last year, I was seeking out a Muah Chee recipe that allows me to pre prepared for an event.  Serving 400 portions of this is no joke.  I can't imagine myself stirring a big portion of dough in shallot oil.

Thanks to Anncoo Journal, I tried her recipe that uses the steaming method and it turned out to be a huge success.  Even the chairman wanted the recipe! and some kids even came back for second helping.

This year, the committee approached me to do the same and since I didn't not document it last year, I thought it will be better if I do it now as I can't recall the quantity I used for 400 servings.

Last year I used a coarser peanut and I need 2kg of it, this year I used the med coarse ones and I only needed 1kg.  I wonder why or was it that I made a bigger batch last year?  Definitely need to document as memory deteriorate by the years.

Note to self: I need 1750g flour for 400 students, 1kg peanuts, 1 kg sugar

Findings:  I have gotten very good responses for this recipe.  Even the older folks gave a thumbs up.

Best of all, it stay soft.

Definitely a keeper!

If you like a even softer texture, just increase the water ratio.

For the home made portion, I actually air fried the raw peanuts.  It is really easy and fuss free.

What you need:

200g raw peanuts


Remove impurities and give a quick rinse to the raw peanuts.

Preheat air fryer to 140 deg.  Air fried for 12 mins.

Increase temperature to 160 deg and continue to air fry for another 6 mins.

Thanks Ann for sharing.

250g glutinous rice flour
3 tbsp caster sugar

Whisk batter till smooth and pour batter into the hot cake tin.
