Cereal Prawns

I don't know what to do with the prawns in my freezer. Sambal, boring! Masak lemak cili api, yawn!Takkan nak buat rendang kottt! Read K.Nor's latest entry, the cereal prawns looks tempting. So, cereal prawns it is.

I like it but Mrkamahkamah only ate one. Maybe next time I should deep fried the prawns and put more oatmeal, yum yum. Here's the recipe which I copied from Kak Nor and Kak Nor took it from Gert. Thanks ya K.Nor and Gert.

1 pound of large shrimps/prawns
3 tbsp of cornstarch
4 cloves garlic – finely chopped
2 sprigs of curry leaves
4 bird eye chilies – cut small
3 tbsp butter
½ cup oatmeal/nestum
2 egg yolks
2 tbsp of milk
1 1/2 tsp of chicken granules
1 tsp sugar
Salt and pepper to taste

1. Use a pair of scissors to cut off all the legs of shrimps. Cut alone the back and remove the black vein. Leave the head and shell intact. Pat dries the shrimps and seasons it with a bit of salt and pepper.
2. Lightly dredged the shrimp with cornstarch. Heat up some oil to deep fried it (I actually pan fried it) Remove them once they turn pink on both side.
3. Remove all the oil in the pan. Wipe clean. Beat the egg yolk and add in the milk. Stir and mix well.
4. Add in the 3 tbsp of butter to the frying pan. Swirl in the egg yolk and stir constantly. At this stage you will see lots of bubbles appearing in the pan. Add in the garlic, chilies and curry leaves. Continue to stir fry until fragrant.
5. Add in the oatmeal. Continue to stir and toss. Add in the chicken granules, sugar, pepper and salt.
6. Toss in the shrimps; continue to stir fry until the shrimps are well coated with the oatmeal. Dish out and serve.

T-Bag didn't eat it because he had rice with roasted lamb shoulder and black pepper gravy. 

Next time I definitely will not buy lamb shoulder because it took ages to cook. Beli lamb chop sudeh!
So, what to cook for tomorrow? 
I have 8 pieces of chicken, mackerel, squids and prawns.
Nak masak apa! Nak masak apa! Arghhh!!!

Udang tu kalau you goreng dengan butter, best jugak. Goreng bersama hirisan bawang biar wangeee baunya.
