Muah Chee (Mochi)

A quick snack that takes less than 5 minutes to put together from start to finish. The soft chewy mochi coated with crunchy sugar topping is so delicious and fun to eat. I can easily eat the whole plate myself.

Muah Chee
recipe adapted from Buttermilk Pantry
makes 2 servings

65g glutinous rice flour
8g (1 Tbsp) tapioca starch
110g water
3g sesame oil
4g regular oil

90g peanuts, finely crushed
40g sugar
2 Tbsp black sesame powder
sea salt (skip if using salted peanuts)

1. Mix all mochi ingredients until thoroughly combined and smooth.
2. Microwave for 1 minute. Mix. Microwave for another minute.
3. Let cool slightly and drop into coating.
4. Using oiled chopsticks and scissors, cut mochi into bite size and toss in coating.
5. Enjoy!

The mochi and coating ingredients are very flexible and customizable. I subbed oolong tea for water in the mochi dough and added black sesame powder to the coating the second time around. The subtle changes make this snack very fun to make and eat.
