Homemade Muah Chee

Muah Chee is a common street food sold in night markets (aka Pasar Malam) or even those pop up stalls during carnivals/events. It’s also my childhood favourite snack.

It’s made from glutinous rice flour coated in a sweet peanut mixture.


For those of you who never attempted making your own Muah Chee, it is actually very very easy to do. I never knew the homemade version could taste as good as what you get at the night markets until one day my sister made some for us.

Don’t think you can really go wrong with it. My sister forgot to add oil and she only discovered it at the end but she added it anyway… I was abit skeptical but yup it tasted greattt sooo yup here’s the recipe!
