Cereal Prawn II

This is yet again another signature dish of hubby's. I am not a seafood lover but I love eating the cereal : scooping lots of them in a bowl and then stuffing mouthfuls of them into mouth. Each time, I have to implore hubby to be generous with the sugar. The cereal will not be tasty if it doesn't have a certain amount of sweetness in it. With a few cut chilis and 3 stalks of curry leaves, the crunchy cereal is simply irresistable. I gave him 2 thumbs up :)

I've just got the recipe from hubby. Here you go....

1 tbsp shao xing wine
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt

20 large prawns
salt to taste
2 tbsp corn flour
2 tbsp butter
1 tbsp sugar
2 cloves garlic, chopped
3 stalks of curry leaves
2 bird-eye chillies, slice
1egg s, lighten beaten
1 - 2 cup Nestum cereal

1. Clean prawn and pat dry with paper towel. Marinate the prawn with the sauces with at least 30 minutes.

2. Coat prawns with beaten eggs before coating it with corn flour for deep-frying. Drain and set aside for later use.

3. In slow fire, melt butter in a pan, add in garlic and fry till slight brown before adding in the curry leaves and cut chilllies. 
4. Add in cereal and stir-fry for 1 to 2 minutes or until the cereal became crispy.

5. Add in prawn and stir to coat. Serve warm
My cooking tips : Ensure that the fire is slow when you add in the cereal to avoid getting burnt. I personally prefer the cereal to be sweeter, hence you may add/reduce the sugar according to your preference.
