Muah Chee is a Chinese specialty snack eaten throughout Southeast Asia. It is a boiled gooey rice dough cut into small pieces and coated with finely chopped peanuts and sugar.

For the Dough:
250 grams (8 ounces) glutinous rice flour
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 shallot, sliced (optional)

For the Peanut Powder:
1 package peanuts, (toasted, preferrably)
Sugar, to taste

1). In a large pot heat water until briskly boiling, then spoon in the glutinous rice flour gently. Don’t scatter the flour. Boil until the flour floats. It should look like dough when it starts to float. Scoop out the cooked Muah Chee and put it on a plate. Repeat until all the flour has been cooked.

2). Fry shallot in vegetable oil, then pour mixture over Muah Chee. (optional)

*Note: Using shallot in this recipe is optional.

3). Use scissors to cut Muah Chee into bite sized portions before mixing it well with the oil. Set aside.

4). Grind the peanuts into a fine powder, adding sugar to taste. Take Muah Chee pieces and roll in the ground peanut powder. Continue rolling in peanut powder until all of the Muah Chee pieces are entirely coated with the peanut powder. Serve Muah Chee warm.

Makes 4 servings.

Hi, I really love your website. Was really glad to find that you had the recipe for muah chee and it looked real simple. However when I tried making it, it kinda flopped big time. Maybe I'm missing something. My flour floats on the surface of the water and the flour "cooked" unevenly with a transparent gelantinous outer layer and uncooked floor inside. Could you help me with this problem? Guess it is not as easy to make muah chee as the recipe seemed.

Great!!, but I have one question: Why does my Muah Chee harden and how can we prevent it? Thanks

Reviewer: Sylvia
Can you tell me what the estimated pot size and the amount of water needed to mix with the glutinous rice powder?

Reviewer: Iszy
I find that using Mochiko powder and water then steaming it is a better option.
