Nestum Cereal Prawn

CookBook Challenge Week - 33

  • 500g prawn (trim head and deveined, while keeping the shell intact)
  • 2 tbsp cornflour
  • 1 cup Nestum Cereal (available at asian grocery) - you may lightly toast them without oil
  • 1 - 2 tsp sugar (I use caster sugar, you may use brown sugar too)
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 large chilli, finely chopped (You may use more than 1 or use bird's chillies)
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • Some curry leaves
  • Oil (enough to fry the prawns)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

  1. Clean and trim prawn. Sprinkle with prawn with cornflour, salt and pepper. Coat well and leave aside for awhile.
  2. At the mean time, chop chilli and garlic, also, mix toasted nestum cereal with sugar in a bowl and set aside.
  3. Heat up amount of oil enough and lightly fry the prawn and drain.
  4. In a clean wok or pan, over low heat, add in butter. Once it is melted, fry garlic, curry leaves and chili till fragrant or until the leaves soften.
  5. Add in prawns, season with salt and pepper to taste and mix well.
  6. Remove the wok or pan from heat, add in nestum mixture and coat well the prawn quickly. Adjust taste before serve.
  7. Serve hot with rice.

  • Amount of salt, pepper, chilli and sugar is depending on your likeness.
  • Use at least medium size prawn and make sure the prawn is fresh.
  • Make sure the oil is hot when you fry the prawns so that the shell is crispy
  • If you are using instant nestum pack, dont worry about adding sugar because usually there are added sugar in instant nestum.
