Mua Chi

I have always heard of this old lady selling nice Mua Chi in Petaling Street. I finally got a chance to try them. I was disappointed.

The Mua Chi was just so so. I have tasted better Mua Chi's and can make better ones (at least I think mine taste better). But I did like the poh poh selling it. She was very friendly.


The poh poh in Petaliing street selling Mua Chi


Black sesame Mua Chi I bought.

Here's a simple Mua Chi recipe for you to try out.

Ingredients: Groundnuts
- 400g peanuts
- tablespoons of granulated sugar (add more if you want it sweeter)
- 2 tbsp sesame seed

Method:
1. Bake peanuts in the oven until brown. Remove the skin.
2. Chop them up using a chopping board or a food processor. (I use the chopping board though I have a food processor because the food processor oils up the chopped peanuts. That will make the nut mixture too wet and not fragrant)
3. Mix sugar and sesame seed together in the chopped nuts.

You can also use a mixture of black and white sesame seeds in the nuts mixture. For more "English" style of Mua Chi, you can add some oats\wheat germ and baked sunflower seeds in the nut mixture.

For lazy people, you can always get ready chopped groundnuts in packets in the supermarkets :P

Ingredients: Mua Chi
- 250g glutinous rice flour (tepung pulut)
- 1 1/2 cup of water
- 2 tbsp of vegetable oil
- a pinch of salt

Method:
1. Mix the flour with water, salt and oil evenly.
2. Steam the dough for about 30 minutes. And let cool.
3. Use a scissors to cut them out into small cubes and mix them in the nuts mixture.

For more variations and taste to the Mua Chi, you can try the following;
- mix grinned black sesame seeds in step 1
- use a mixture of glutinous rice flour and black glutinous rice flour
- mix chopped "kei chi" (the small little red stuff you put in herbal soups) in step 1
- replace the water with soya milk for smoother and milky Mua Chi taste

And always remember, Mua Chi is made from glutinous rice flour. Don't eat Mua Chi too much at once, it will make your stomach sick.
