Homemade Penang Muah Chee

Muah Chee or Muar Chee is a Penang local delicacy made of glutinuos rice and coated with ground roasted peanuts,  granulated sugar and top with fried shallots. My mum and I used to made when I'm a teenager as my family love muah chee so much. I've tried many stalls in KL but still can't compare to those we found in Penang. After so long I've decided to give it a try. Making the glutinuos rice is quite easy but the problem is the process of removing the peanuts skin after toasting it in the oven is quite time consuming. But if we are chasing for the true taste then we shall made all from scratch, otherwise you may buy those roasted peanuts and grind it yourself.

Muah Chee 
Serving: 4


- 120g glutinous rice flour
- 180ml water
- 2 tablespoons of peanut/shallot/cooking oil
- 150g of peanut/sugar mix (use granulated sugar as per your preference)
- 4 cloves of shallot 


1. Mix the glutinous rice flour, water and oil in a deep dish and steam for 25 minutes. Once the mixture is set and turn to sticky white paste then its ready. Brush the dough with a little oil. Leave to cool down slightly.
2. Then put the peanuts in a baking tray and bake at 180C until it turn golden brown. Place the peanuts and in a blender/food processor and grind to a fine mixture (or you may buy ready-made). Place the peanut mix on a big plate/tray and cut a desired amout of the sticky paste onto the peanut mix and cut it to small pieces for more even coat.
3. Pour the peanut/sugar mix into another bowl. Cut the sticky paste into small cubes and coat them well with the mix.
4. To make shallot oil, thinly sliced the shallots. Fry with 2 parts oil to 1 part shallot till golden.
