Muah Chee

I've finally decided to make aunty Fiona's Muah Chee recipe and it came out great! If you want store-bought muah chee taste, you got to try her simple and easy-to-follow recipe. It was made in a jiffy! Lily's version was just as good. Thanks to both of them, I sucessfully made Muah Chee! ^___^
Food for Thought:
There is no such thing as a 'self-made' man. We are made up of thousands of others. Everyone who has ever done a kind deed for us, or spoken one word of encouragement to us, has entered into the makeup of our character and of our thoughts, as well as our success.

muah chee
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.

Aunty FIona's version
Ingredients:
Glut. Rice Flour, 1 cup
water, 3/4-1 cup
(Measurement of flour and rice is typically 1 :1, one to one portion)
Onion Oil., few T
1 pkt of grounded peanut (ready- made ones avilable in asian stores)
sugar, 1/4 cup
Directions:
~ Place water and flour into a big bowl
~Stir until like a smooth batter.
~Add 1 tablespoon of onion oil or slightly more
(fry onions in oil and use the oil. This is optional . regular vegetable oil can be used instead. The only difference is the frarance of onions.)
~ Stir the batter again until even.
~Grease the tin used before steaming
~Steam until the batter become a sticky dough, approximately 10 mins.
(to test, use a chopstick and poke it in the middle. If batter oozes out, it is not cooked)
~ Cool it before using a scissor to cut into small pieces
~ On a flat plate, pour grounded peanuts and sugar. Mix well.
~Add the dough to the peanut sugar mixture.
~Using an oiled scissor, snip into smaller pieces and coat well with peanuts. If it is not going to be eaten immediately, remove a small piece enough to be eaten, leave the rest of the dough and peanut mixture sepeartely.

I was browsing Lily's blog and found out that she made muah chee using a microwave with a little variation to the ingredients. I tried it and it came out just as good! The coconut taste was very subtle and not noticable. Adapting from her blog, this was what i did...
Alternative version: MICROWAVE!!
Grease a microwavable bowl with oil and pour batter in it. Cover the lid and microwave on high for 2 minutes. Remove from microwave and stir in one direction the semi-cooked dough. Microwave on high for another 30 seconds. Repeat until it is cooked. Rest of the steps are the same.
Alternative ingredients i used:
To the above ingredients, add 2 tsp coconut cream, 2 t of sugar and 1 tsp oil. Decrease the water to 1/2 cup.
