Chinese Peanut Pancake / Man Jien Kuih

It's Saturday!!!!

Started my day at 615am with jogging at a nearby park. It was super dark and i got so scared that i would be 'kidnapped' by some i thinking too much?

So after the jog, i was soooooo eppi with my flatter stomach that i quickly went home and made myself a hearty breakfast. I vowed earlier that i would at least try to stay healthy for 1 month by ceasing junk food intake...and while i was having my tasteless bowl of oatmeal, i heard this..

Psst psst...over here!! over here!!

Guess what was 'calling' me? a bottle of coarsely chopped peanuts....yerrr! Why liddat 1??? I wanna stay healthy also kenot! Suddenly i was walking towards my recipe books cabinet...and suddenly i was pulling out a book....and the next second i found myself whipping up a batter!! Haha!!'s what i've got:

  • 220g of plain flour
  • 40g of sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp soda bicarbonate
  • 1/2 tsp yeast
  • 1 cup of water

Coarsely chopped peanuts + balanced amount of sugar


  1. Combine all the batter ingredients in a mixing bowl using a whisk. Set aside the smooth and silky batter for 30 minutes.
  2. Heat up a non stick pan. On low fire, pour the batter to the pan and spread evenly. Close the pan with a lid for about 40 seconds.
  3. Toss a handful of fillings over the pancake. Fold the pancake into half moon shape. Cut and serve hot.
The man jien kuih is super delicious and super easy to make!! A definite keeper!!
aiyoyo...sumbody please stop me from eating....
