Happy Call Doubled Sided Pan Muah Chee
I used to look forward to the seventh month festive at my neighbourhood because when there was Chinese Opera or Getai performance, these mobile hawkers will appear from nowhere to sell local snacks and my all time favourite is the Muah Chee.
Except for the famous Hougang 6 Mile Muah Chee stall that has moved to Blk 69 Bedok South, I don't remember knowing anywhere selling them now. Hence I went onto the web and found a ready easy to make Muah Chee recipe from Cuisine Paradise in 15 minutes. Now I can enjoy Muah Chee anytime I want.
All the ingredients needed for the dish, Glutinous Flour, Peanut Powder, White Sesame Seeds and Shallot can be easily found at any major supermarkets.
Frying the sliced shallot to golden brown to get the shallot oil.
Once the Flour mixture is poured into the Happy Call Pan, it will solidified rather fast. Quickly use a wooden spoon or chopsticks to keep stirring it into a dough. The dough is very sticky so for easy wash later, do use something wooden.
Remember to oil a plate/container before transferring the dough from the pan to the plate/container. If not the dough will stick to the plate/container and hard to remove later.
After preparing the sesame and peanut powder, I transferred the dough back to the pan to mix with the peanut mixture. I didn't have caster sugar so I used normal sugar instead. The normal sugar gave the Muah Chee a rough texture. My advice is to skip the sugar if you don't have caster sugar. It will still taste as good.
The last step is to cut the dough into small pieces, mixed them well with the peanut mixture and you are ready to serve.
