#CookForFamily is an initiative created by Daniel Ang a local food blogger. This movement aims to bring families and your loved ones closer together by sharing your love through cooking or preparing food that will warm their hearts.
I am delighted to be part of #CookForFamily as it allows me to do my little bit to put a smile on the faces of the people I love. I mean, we should always cook for the ones we love because it really means a lot. But if you haven’t already done so, which I must shamefully admit, this is the perfect reason for you and me to start. I am no big chef and my only great culinary achievement so far was an A1 grade for Home Economics 12 years back. So for this post, I am going to prepare a snack which is very popular amongst everyone. It is a small little treat which we so affectionately call “Muah Chee”. Recipe is courtesy of E.
For the uninitiated, Muah Chee is a traditional snack that is made of glutinous rice flour. The cooked batter is then cut into bite sized pieces which are then bathed in ground peanut and sugar.
You do not need many ingredients for this and preparation is really quite simple. The below portion feeds a family of 5.
What you need:
1) Glutinous rice flour, 250g (Sunflower Brand)
2) Peanut Powder, 150g
3) Sugar, 2 teaspoon for the batter and 75g to be mixed with the ground peanut powder.
4) Salt, 1/2 teaspoon
5) Oil, 1 tablespoon
6) Water, 200ml
7) Happy Call High Pressure Pan (Any other non-stick pan will suffice)
1) Add the glutinous rice flour into a big bowl
2) Add sugar, salt and oil into the bowl
3) Pour the water slowly and stir
4) Stir religiously till there are no clumps of flour
5) Pour the batter into the non-stick pan (no oil needed)
6) Slow fire for about 30 minutes and do not forget to flip the batter over
7) Weigh out the ground peanut powder and sugar
8) Cut the cooked batter into bite-sized portions
9) Let your cut batter roll in the ground peanut powder and sugar mixture
As you can see, Muah Chee is something that everyone can prepare. It is really quite simple really. It was my first attempt and my parents thought it was quite well done. I personally think that this batch was slightly on the tough side because I added 50 ml of water less (the recipe stated here is the correct one). But nonetheless, it brought smiles to their faces which made me, the Muah Chee Man happy in return.
