Very Easy


Number of serving: 4
1 packet of store-bought cereal prawn mix

2 sprigs curry leaves

350 g large prawns

3 large egg yolks, lightly beaten

2 chilli padi (bird?s eye chilli), sliced thinly

30 g butter

vegetable oil for deep frying


  • Using a pair of kitchen scissors cut off the legs and trim the heads and tails slightly.
  • Using a very sharp knife slit across the top of the prawn and pull out the veins. Leave the shell and heads intact.
  • In a wok, add enough oil to cover the prawns. Once the oil is hot, add the prawns and deep fry until cooked. Remove the prawns and set aside.
  • Melt butter in the wok, add the curry leaves and fry for about 30 seconds.
  • Then add in the egg yolks and fry until cooked. Then add in the cereal mix and quickly fry until fragrant.
  • Lower the fire to prevent the cereal from burning.
  • Then add back the cooked prawns and coat entirely with the cereal.
  • Serve hot.
