In this video I am going to share with you a Cereal Prawn (麦片虾) Recipe.
Crispy prawns tossed in a fragrant cereal mixture is a simple yet so deliciously satisfying dish. The added chilies and curry leaves give this dish that extra punch on every bite.
This is a popular and well-loved dish in Singapore and Malaysia. The combination of prawns and cereal gives you a tasty dish that is beyond your imagination.
Happy cooking 😉
Several notes here to share with you:
I used Nestle Nestum Cereal (original) in this recipe. You could use the honeyed Nestum Cereal or alternatively, you could also use those 3-in-1 ready-mix sachets (typically containing cereal, milk powder and sugar). Any of these is acceptable for this recipe.
I used seafood curry powder in this recipe. Curry powder is added to give more flavors to the prawns. You could use other types of curry powder that is available to you.
I used corn flour in this recipe. You could use sweet potato flour if you prefer.
Here is a quick rundown of the recipe:
Remove the curry leaves from their stem and set aside. Pat dry the deshelled prawns with a kitchen towel. Sliced each prawn from its underside to remove its intestinal tract. Slicing the prawns from their underside prevent them from curling up during cooking.
Mix the egg, salt, curry powder and plain flour in a bowl. Dip each prawn in the mixture and then dip into the corn flour to coat both sides lightly. Shake off any excess flour. Heat up the cooking oil in a pot over MEDIUM heat. Reduce heat to LOW and deep fry the prawns in batches to avoid crowding. Deep fry the prawns in the hot oil for 40 seconds and remove them with a strainer.
Melt the butter in a pan over LOW heat. Add minced garlic, curry leaves and sliced bird eye chilies and stir fry for 1min. Add the fried prawns and stir fry for another 1min. Switch off the heat, add cereal and malted milk to the pan. Tossed the prawns in the pan to mix well with the mixture. Cereal prawns are now ready to be served.
Happy cooking 😉🧡
