Muah Chee – 麻糍

Making muah chee in 15 minutes? At home? It may sound preposterous but using a microwave is easy. Its is a traditional snack sold in night markets or now, in food courts. It’s a childhood favourite. Sticky springy pillowy soft mua chee coated with sweet ground roasted peanuts or sweetened black sesame. The best way to eat it is using a toothpick to spear it and pop into one’s mouth.
