Lo Mai Chi

12.11.2013 - Batam. I can't believe making Lo Mai Chi is super easy and fast!! never in my life i thought i would make this myself..LOL..it is one of my favourite kueh actually but since i could get this easily in malaysia or brunei where i've stayed in the past i have never thought of troubling myself to make my own.  Lo Mai Chi is my childhood favourite kueh and still is till today.

Today, I am so inspired by a sifu baker, who makes this today i saw from facebook. so inspiring and i havent had this for ages. so though of giving it a try.  Whether it will come out good or ugly, i will have to eat them anyway!

So before start my challenge, i google for pictures and more recipe choice and watch some video for a better understanding then i start the recipe on my hand.  so did some modification due to some ingredients not available.  But surprisingly i didn't fail, it came out so well. so deliciously good! i just love it. is like biting those i bought from the market. i just love it.

Ingredients for filling:
1 cup Peanut
1/2 cup granulate sugar or to taste

* stir fried peanut till golden brown, dish up and blend finely with a hand mixer.
* Transfer fine peanuts fillings to a bowl and mix with granulated sugar to taste.

Ingredients for batter:-
125g glutinous rice flour
3 tbsp vegetable oil
3 cups of 1/3 cups of water ( confused? 3 cups of water, im using the cup size of 1/3 cup )

* Mix well and steam for 15-20 minutes. ( if you mixed the batter ahead of time, make sure you stir well before you transfer to steamer for steaming )
* Transfer out from steamer and let it cool for maybe 10 minutes or so.
* Spread about 1/3 cup of glutinous rice flour on the clean plate or working counter.
* Scrap the medium warm batter all together with a scrapper.
* with a spoon scoop a spoon amount of warm batter on to the plate with rice flour. work on the plate with your fingers flatten it, if you find it too sticky, you can dip more flour on your fingers tips and do the pressing to a size that enough to cover a teaspoon of peanuts fillings in the center and seal it gently form a ball ( it doesnt have to be a perfect ball ) and roll it on the glutinous rice flour and transfer to a paper cup, served.

Happy Kueing!!
