How To Make Mua Chee from Leftover Tong Yuan (Glutinous Rice Balls)

Tang Yuan before I turned them in to Mua Chee. My Tang Yuan Mua Chee, yummy! I have some leftover Tong Yuan that have already absorbed most of the sugar syrup and are a little bit soggy. Since I have in hand some salted peanuts that I bought last week, I decided to make mua chee (a glutinous rice dessert with roasted peanuts, see my post on mua chee, http://peteformation.blogspot.com/2008/12/penang-kek-lok-si-temple-and-dinner-at.html) out of them. First, I pound the salted peanuts finely. Then I added some sugar to the peanuts. I removed all the sugar syrup from the Tang Yuan by placing them on a sieve. After that, I sprinkled the grounded peanut and sugar over the Tang Yuan. Tang Yuan has the same texture as mua chee, so it tastes like the original mua chee when mixed with grounded peanut. The salted peanut gave my Tang Yuan Mua Chee a little bit extra taste! Love every bits of it!
