Peanut Powder Coated Moo-chi

My peanut mochi moooo~🐄 Tweaked my original peanut mochi recipe by adding bamboo charcoal powder to create the cow patched pattern. No difference in taste, just look different. Just having some fun preparing to usher the Moo Moo Year 😜

Yield: 3 to  4 persons


95g glutinous rice flour, about 1 cup
10g tapioca starch *
10g fine sugar
25g hot water
150~155g water

1/4 tsp bamboo charcoal powder

100g ground peanut powder + sugar #
10g white sesame seeds, roasted, optional

* tapioca starch can be replaced by glutinous rice flour
# the ground peanut powder I used have already added some sugar in it


1. Mix glutinous rice flour, tapioca starch and fine sugar in a bowl or measuring jug.

Dig a well in the center and pour hot water into it. Let the content stands for about 10 minutes without disturbing it.

Mix the content..

Followed by 150~155g of water.

Stir into a smooth batter.

Cover with a sheet of cling wrap and let the batter stands for 15 minutes to 2 hours. I let the batter stood for 2 hours.

2. Transfer about 45g of the original batter to a small pouring jug, and mix 1/4 tsp of bamboo charcoal powder to it. 

3. Mix the peanut powder and roasted white sesame seeds in a mixing bowl or plate. Set aside.

4. Heat about 1 tbsp of vegetable oil in a preheated non-stick flat base pan at low heat.

When the oil is hot, stir the batter and pour it into the pan.

Let the batter spread out on its own without disturbing it.

Pour the bamboo charcoal batter in small amount over the original batter to create the patched pattern.

Close the lid and let the batter heat for about 3 minutes at low heat.

5. The batter is ready when it solidifies. Use a spatula to roll up the glutinous rice cake.

Heat on both sides till the glutinous rice cake is cooked, or turns slightly translucent.

6. Coat a pair of kitchen scissors and tongs with non-stick spray or oil before use. Cut a small portion of the cooked glutinous rice cake and drop into the peanut powder mixture.

Cut the glutinous rice cake into smaller pieces and toss them to coat with the peanut powder mixture. The peanut powder prevents the cake cubes from sticking to each other.

7. Serve warm or cold 😋
