Recipe: Muar Chee
8 oz glutinous rice flour
2 tablespoons tapioca flour
1 1/2 cup water
Some cooking oil (for greasing)
Fried shallot crisps
Roasted Peanuts Mixture
4 oz ground roasted peanuts
4 oz sugar
2 oz sesame seeds (lightly toasted)
Mix the glutinous rice flour and tapioca flour with water to form a batter. Transfer the batter into a greased pan. Steamed over high heat for 10-15 minutes until the glutinous rice paste is completely cooked through in the center. Let cool.
In a deep dish, mix the ground roasted peanuts, sugar, and sesame seeds well. Cut a small piece of the rice paste using a plastic knife. Drop it into the mixture and start cutting the rice paste into smaller cubes. Coat well with the mixture, dish out and serve immediately with some fried shallot crisps.
If you want a sinfully delicious Muar Chee, add some lard into the ground peanuts and/or the steamed glutinous rice paste. It’s not healthy but it will taste even better.
