Pumpkin Muah Chee

I had some leftover pumpkin puree and was wondering what to do with it and toyed with the idea of making pumpkin Muah Chee. 

Here it is, my experimental Pumpkin Muah Chee which only took a mere couple of minutes to cook by zapping in the microwave.

As you can see, the pumpkin made the muah chee a bright sunny yellow. However, it was not as pumpkin-ny tasting as you may think.  The taste was very subtle. In fact, I can hardly taste it. But it was fun experimenting. 

Now I'm thinking of what other muah chee flavor I'll experiment next. I have so many ideas, from sweet potato to green tea to black sesame, I'm having a hard time to choose!

Pumpkin Muah Chee
(serves 2)

100g pumpkin puree
40g glutinous rice flour
20g water
1 tsp vegetable oil

For coating:
crushed / finely chopped peanuts
brown sugar

Mix all ingredients into a smooth paste. Put into a microwave safe bowl, microwave on high for 2 minutes. Take out, give it a stir and microwave further for another 2 minutes. The dough would have become opaque, sticky and thicken.
In the mean time, crush or finely chop some ready roasted peanuts. Mix with brown sugar to taste.
Put the microwaved dough onto the peanut sugar mixture. Cut the dough to pieces using a plastic knife, at the same time coating the cut pieces with the peanut sugar mixture. Serve!


  1. wow you just made something I was intending to experiment with this weekend! Hehe looks like I got my answer, that pumpkin muah chee doesn't have a strong flavor after all ;p I guess I should experiment with purple sweet potato this weekend instead then! :)

  2. Janine, i'll look forward to your experiment! haha i wonder if it'll turn out blue black using the purple sweet potatoes! :P

  3. i think black sesame is another great idea! They are going to be so fragrant coming from the peanuts and the black sesame!
