Mi - Chang / Rice puff Crackers




Mi - Chang or Bee Pang is another name for this Chinese snack. Similar recipe to Sajima but puffed rice are used instead of the egg noodles. I bought the puffed rice from a Indian shop in Little India. It's not easy to make your own puffed rice and it costs only $1.20 for a packet of 200gms.  So better to buy than diy. I added cashewnuts instead of peanuts and also added fried sesame seeds. Just as yummy as Sajima.


Puffed Rice Crackers

Ingredients:

 (A) 200 gms puffed rice
       100gms fried cashewnut
        50 gms fried sesame seeds

(B) 750 ml water
       350 gms of sugar
       1 tbsp maltose
       I tbsp lime juice
       40 ml corn oil

Method:

Cook ingredients (B) in a wok over medium heat for 30 mins till mixture turns to a thick syrup.
Test it by dropping a drop into cold water.
If it solidify then it's ready.
Pour the puffed rice and cashewnuts into the wok and mix well.
Pour into a oil greased 14 × 14 inch tray and pressed mixture down.
Can also use a rolling pin to compact mixture.
Cool and cut into squares for storage.
