Soft & Fluffy Peanut Muah Chee

Muah chee is my husband’s favourite snack, he’s always looking for it as an after dinner snack whenever we are out. It can sell for $3 for a small box in shopping malls, $2 is a very rare find. I can make many boxes with a pack of glutinous rice flour.

We like our muah chee to be soft and fluffy hence the glutinous rice flour to water ratio is 1 : 1.2 , if you prefer it chewier, you can do 1 : 1 or even 1 : 0.8

Authentic muah chee uses shallot oil for the extra aroma but it’s not a total deal breaker. I used sesame oil instead.

I don’t like my peanut powder to be too sweet, so I buy peanut powder that does not have sugar included. The ratio of peanut powder to sugar that I found best is 2:1 , you can adjust it according to your preference.

Muah chee is a popular Singapore snack made of glutinous rice flour covered in sugared peanut powder. If you like mochi, then you wouldn’t want to miss this.
