aunty, would you have a recipe for mua zi? i love those!!! hehe this post reminded me of it :p

i'm trying to find 2 recipes for the K jelly. One is for bandung k. jelly and the other is for the one we always see in shops - red top with a white base. i don't even know what it is called. would you happen to have a recipe or know the name of that kind of jelly?

thank you!

Hello aunty lucy, very nice MJK ...i'll be trying them soon. I love mine with lots of peanuts n sweetcorn. Very clever in using the eno to achive the bubble n fluffy effect.
From the pics the pan u are using somehow different!
Will using a non stick pan be a good option to cook this MJK.

thank you

sue said...

aunty lucy...did u use oil or butter to grease your pan?
Your pan looks different , what type of pan is it?
Will using a non stick pan be a good choice to cook this MJK?

thanks

Hi sue,

I tried greasing with butter but the butter always turn black so I used cornoil.

My pan is AMC pan. You can use the copper mi jian kueh mould or any non stick pan but you need a cover - any cover will do.

Hello Aunty Yochana,

Could I omit the Eno or substitute it with something else ? Does it make any difference ?

Many thanks,
Esther

May I know if bicarbonate soda is the same as baking soda?

yochana said...

Hi anonymous,

Bicarbonate of Soda is Baking soda.

yochana said...

Hi Esther,

You can replace it with 1 tsp. instant yeast but you have to add it in the beginning whereas Eno is added in at the end.

hi aunty yochana,

thank you! i didn't realise mua zi got easy and difficult recipe! i think easy one is all i can handle :)

i love bandung, so i'm thinking of using that to make konnyaku jelly. the red top and white base jelly.. not sure what kind of jelly it is, i saw them selling at Subway and small stores before.

thank you!

yochana said...

Hi pink,

O.K. I will try to go and see what it is and then figure it out.

hi,
Can i keep the batter in the fridge for later use or overnight?

yochana said...

I think keeping in the fridge overnight should be no problem otherwise just do half recipe.

BTAN said...

Love reading your blog..Yippee...MJK is one of my favorite kuih, like many of the readers, I live in US have not found such kuih exist yet. What can I substitute ENO with as I am not sure if I can find ENO in stores here.
Thanks

reena said...

Aunty Lucy,
What size AMC pot did you use for this recipe?

yochana said...

Hi reena,

The base of the AMC pan is 7 1/2" and the top is about 9 1/2".

yochana said...

Hi BTan,

You can use instant yeast instead of Eno but for instant yeast, you have to let it ferment for at least half an hour...use 1 tsp.

Hi Aunty Yochana,

Thank you very much for sharing this MJK recipe. It is my all time favourite Chinese sweets. Do you have the recipe to another version of MJK. It is a thin cripsy type of MJK using the same fillings (peanuts, butter and sugar). I love eating this too. Can you please share this recipe? Kind regards, Michelle

yochana said...

Hi Michelle,

I also love the thin crispy version but regret to let you know that I'm looking for that recipe too.

Hallo Aunty

This is one of my favourite snack when I was in Singapore. I dont think i can find 'eno' here [the netherlands'. is there anything to substitute?

stargirl said...

Hi,

Can the baking soda be substituted with four times as much baking powder? Thanks!
