Cereal and Cornflakes Squid recipe and used it for the prawns that I have in my freezer. Anyway, this is suppose to the the original recipe for prawns. Actually this recipe taste better with prawns than squid. But then again it is a matter of one's choice. Next round I might try it with chicken! LOL!
Large prawns,500gms, remove legs and cut out the veins
Corn flour to coat the prawns
Butter, 3 table spoons
Crispy Cereal, (from Nestum or off the shelf prepacked cereal for cooking), 1/2 cup or more
Crispy cornflakes, 1/2 cup
Egg, 1 pc, slightly beaten
Oil for deep frying
Curry leaves, from 3 sprigs
Cili padi (birdeye chilli), 2 pcs, cut into small slices (optional)
Salt to taste (optional)
Heat up wok and put in oil for deep frying. Coat prawns with corn flour and deep fry it for around 3 minute or longer if you want the skin to be crispy. Take out the prawns and put it aside. Use the deep frying oil to cook hair like eggs using a sieve. Put these hair liked eggs aside as well. Pour out the oil from the wok. Put the butter in the wok and add in the curry leave and chili padi. Add crispy cornflakes, cereal and salt to taste. Put the hair liked fried eggs in the mixture. Take it out from the wok and put it on top of the fried prawns. Garnish the Butter Cornflakes and Cereal prawns with parsley before serving.
