What's In My Muah Chee?

I'm sure everyone of you are so familiar with this special simple local delight. Though I don't eat this often, I would love to try making it at home. This is a quickie recipe so there's no hesitation making it your own. Well, muah chee is quite similar to the local mochi actually (but different to the Japanese mochi or daifuku). Mochi is normally served with the fillings wrapping inside while muah chee is by coating them on the outer layer. And what makes mine so special? Errrrr.... actually it isn't special....just fun & more flavourful to enjoy. I had mine by adding in the black glutinous rice flour and some azuki....oh and some coconut milk. I love adding in these three ingredients in my cooking & baking a lot. They are such a terrific marriage couple.

And here's the recipe.
Ingredients :
1-1/2 cups glutinous rice flour
1/2 cup  black glutinous rice flour
3 tbsp  sugar
1 cup  boiling water
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/3 cup  cooked azuki (canned azuki)

For Coating :
1/2 cup  roasted crushed peanut
2 tbsp  fine palm sugar
2 tbsp  sugar
(combine both & mix well)

Method :
(1) combine both glutinous rice flour, azuki & sugar into a big bowl.
(2) then stir in coconut milk & boiling water, mix till combined.
(3) place the sticky paste to a oil based pan then steam for 30mins.
(4) leave dough to cool completely before coating with crushed peanut sugar.

This is a very interesting flavour of muah chee. Hope you guys will love it too. enjoy & have fun!
