Cereal Prawns

I got this recipe from M4M forum sometime ago. My three gluttons were very delighted with this dish. As per forummer's advice, I coated the prawns with potato starch before deep frying all.

One thing I need to mention here is the tip given at Jingle's Blog, I learnt that to prevent the prawns from absorbing too much oil, the oil has to be very hot. In the past, whenever I deep fried any prawns, I was always worried that the oil would splatter all over the place, so I tend to lower the heat and let the prawns take a longer time to cook. Thus, I ended with very oily prawns. Thanks Jingle for this enlightening post and not to forget the one who shared this recipe at M4M forum (sorry, can't remember the User Name of the forummer and it is impossible to trace because I got it from the old forum), thanks for the wonderful recipe!

Cereal Prawns

300g big prawns (trimmed, washed and drained)
Some potato starch
4 cups oil for deep frying

3 tbsp butter/margarine
3 egg yolks, beaten lightly

1 tbsp chopped garlic and shallots
1/2 tbsp chicken stock granules
1/2 tsp sugar
2 sprigs curry leaves – sliced
6 chilli padi – sliced
Dash of salt & pepper to taste

5 tbsp Instant Nestum Cereal


Coat prawns with potato starch.

Heat up oil, make sure oil is very hot, add prawns and deep fry for 1 minute. Dish and drain.

Leave 1/2 cup of oil in the wok, sauté A till fragrant, add B and continue to fry till fragrant. Add prawns and fry till aromatic.

Lastly, add C and fry till dry. Dish up and serve hot.
