Exploring the Miracles of Neiwan

Traditional hakka Mua Chee (Qi Ba)

leave a comment »

Qi Ba (known as mua chee in Spore) is served with the glutinous roll and peanuts unmixed. Locals showed us how to make it – the Hakka way. Cut them into strips, roll in peanut bits then use chopsticks to slowly twist it out into balls.. Truly authentic! (Whereas in Singapore we use scissors to snip into pieces). I really love the Qi Ba in Neiwan because I find it a lot smoother and chewier than the ones in Singapore. You don’t get that bloated feeling after eating it. Awesome!
