I had a lovely conversation with a friend recently, and was describing to her the various kuihs and snacks that were made from rice flour and glutinous rice flour. In Asia, there are a huge variety of dessert-like snacks and they have different degrees of texture, intensity of sweetness and some are even quite gooey or chewy. One of the desserts we discussed was the Mua Chee. It is a chewy glutinous rice dough cooked with an infusion of shallot-oil, cut into little sticky morsels and coated with finely crushed peanuts and fine sugar. The vendors in Asia usually sell them in a little container with toothpicks to pick up the individual pieces. Not a favorite of everyone in my family, but an easy, occasional treat and snack to make, especially in the microwave. This recipe was taken from a forum that is originally posted in another forum, and everyone raved about it. Then I tried it at C's house, liked it, made it, and I am posting it here for G and so that I won't forget it!
Microwave Mau Chee
250g glutinous rice flour
2 tbsp oil
50g castor sugar
Roast the peanuts and process in food processor till fine. Mix with sugar and set aside.
Mix flour, water and oil til smooth, the mixture will resemble a batter mix.
Pour into a microwave-safe bowl and heat on high for 6-7 minutes, depending on your microwave.
Careful as the mua chee will be very hot. Cut up the mua chee and into small pieces using scissors, and mix in the peanuts mixture. Toss till well coated and serve.
