Sa Ji Ma ( updated recipe)


(A) 150 gms flour
      2 eggs
     1/2 tsp baking powder.
      1/4 tsp salt

 (B) 80 gms sugar      
      80 gms maltose            
      40gms water


Sift flour with baking powder and salt.
Beat eggs into a bowl and beat lightly.
Add in the 2 beaten eggs to the flour.
Knead into a dough.
Leave aside for 20 mins.
After 20 mins, roll dough into a thin rectangle.
Cut into 1 inch sections and finally into 1/2 cm strips and coat with flour to prevent from sticking together.
Heat up oil and fry dough strips till golden brown over medium fire.
Placed fried strips into a large bowl.
Cook (B) over medium fire until sugar dissolves.
Pour  mixture onto dissolved sugar syrup and toss until combined.
Transfer mixture into a 6 inch baking tin, lined with a piece of greaseproof paper and press mixture using a spoon until compact.
Leave for an hour or two before cutting into squares.


  1. Hi
    May I know what kind of flour you used here. I live in the USA. They carry all purpose flour, cake flour, corn starch....wheat flour...what kind of flour you used?
    Also, can I cut down the sugar since we can't eat too much sweet.
    Thanks. Also, thanks for sharing your family's recipe

    1. Hi JP. I used plain flour for this recipe. It's really not very sweet when mixed with the noodles. Sugar and maltose are needed to bind the noodles together. Thanks for your interest in this recipe.

    2. thanks so much. I will try to find noodle.. won't be easy to find here, but I guess, I can replace with rice cereal.

    3. Plain flour is all purpose flour.
