Muah Chee

Muah chee is type of snack from Singapore. I always ate it when I visited Singapore although the last time, I went there, there were not many people selling anymore. I made it again today. I just realised, the second time is so much easier. I remember I put in lots of effort the first time, anyway, I better write it down this time so I will never forget.


Sesame seeds

unsalted peanuts


glutinous rice flour (1 cup)

water (1 cup)

How to make it:

I toasted the peanuts and sesame lightly to get the fragrance. It makes the house smells good too. I did remind me of the shopping centre food court in Singapore where they sold Muah chee.

I mixed the peanuts, sesame and sugar together and left it aside on a baking pan.

I mixed the glutinous rice flour and water (1:1) and stir

then I put oil on my pan and pour the mixed flour and water, i turned it every 20 seconds

it takes me about three times turning, it is ready to be added to the peanuts mixture.

serve and enjoy it.


Kway chap

I have tried many Kway Chap in the past but often find the star anise, cinnamon sticks and cloves are overbearing.

My mum makes a very simple Kway Chap which I miss a lot. I finally asked her for her recipe and was very surprised how easy it is to make it. I made it to suit my own family.

Lontong Sayur

Happy Eid Mubarak for my Muslim friends and families.

I made a special Indonesian tradition Eid Mubarak food for hubby. This is one of his favourite must have.

Ingredients A: (Will go into food processor)

Candlenuts 2 (if you do not have this, you may skip, this will add a bit of earthy feel)

Shallots 8

Garlic 8

chillies (big and small) depending on your own taste

turmeric powder 2 teaspoons

galangal powder 1 teaspoon

ginger about 3 cm

Ingredients B:

lemongrass 1

kaffir lime leaves 2-3

coconut milk 2 cans

jackfruit greens 1 can

quail eggs 1 cans

chokoes 2 (cut into julienne)

Chicken (half a kg)

rice cake (buy from groceries so easier to cook)

Ways of Cooking:

  • Heat your saucepan with oil, put in your ingredients A from food processor, dont burn it.
  • when the fragrance is out, put your ingredients (chicken. jackfruits, chokoes and quail eggs) and simmer them along with the sauce for about a minute or two.
  • add your coconut milks, then your waters
  • once the coconut milks boil, turn the heat to low and cook slowly until the oil is coming out of the dish.
  • You can add this to your rice cake, rice cake is preferable cooked ways beyond you start this dish and have enough time to cool down.
  • I normally add crispy sambal shrimp and abc sambal terasi during servings.
