Cereal Butter Prawns 香喷喷麦片虾

Honestly, after enjoying this cereal butter prawns for many years, yet I have no idea where is the recipe originated from. This is a very simple recipe as you can easily prepare at home. As my girl came home for her Uni break one week ago, I prepared this cereal butter prawns for our dinner. It is definitely a winner.  It is also best to bottom off all your leftover cereal in one time. What not to love about !  >o<   Kindly read on for more.

I personally prefer to fry my prawns in a clean way without add in any kind of flour coating. This will give the prawns really nice whitish colour shade on the shell.
Tips : it is to fry them with just a little bit of oil which is more or less to half fry and half toast them over medium heat.

Ingredients :
400gm   tiger prawns (about 6 big size prawns)
4   garlic cloves, finely chopped
20 spring    curry leaves
1  bird eye chili, smashed
4 TB    salted butter
1-1/2 TB    sugar
1/2 tspn  salt (or to taste)
1-1/2 cup    cereal mixed with 2 tspn   milk powder
* 1 TB  salted butter

Method :
(1)  clean prawns and cut the back of prawn to remove vein. Skip this if you're using small prawns,  then drain and pat dry with paper towel.
(2)  preheat wok with 1/2 cup cooking oil, once the oil is hot enough, fry prawns in few batches till just cooked. Set aside to drain.

(3) remove cooking oil from wok, then melt butter over low heat.
(4) once butter melted, stir in garlic and let to cook till lightly brown,
(5) now, add in chili & curry leaves and saute for 30 seconds.

(6) finally, stir in cereal mixture and the remaining seasoning and mix well. Off the heat, transfer to bowl.

(7)  preheat wok with 1 TB butter over low heat, add in fried prawns and mix till prawns coated with melted butter, then off the heat.
(8)  add in cooked cereal and mix well, then serve.

Hubby & I left all the prawns to the kids. They're loving it to bits. So, each of them polished off three big prawns. I am so happy to watch them eating with their fingers licking good. haha..... So, enjoy your week ahead everyone !
