Nestum Prawns

Saw this Cereal Prawns recipe while blog hopping and knew I had to try this! This recipe calls for oatmeal but I used Nestum instead. Well, this dish turned out to be really good. Just bear in mind that the Nestum loses its crunchiness if kept too long. So, prepare them just in time for your meal :)

Prawns - 15
Cornstarch - 3 tbsp
Garlic (finely chopped) - 3 cloves
Curry leaves - 2 springs
Bird eye chilies (cut small) - 3
Butter - 3 tbsp
Nestum - 1/2 cup
Egg yolks - 1
Milk - 2 tbsp
Salt and pepper to taste

Clean prawns removing the back veins but leaving the head and shell intact.
Seasons with salt and pepper.
Lightly coat the prawns with cornstarch. Heat up some oil and pan fry it.
Remove them once they turn pink on both sides.
Wipe clean the pan. Beat the egg yolks and add in milk. Stir and mix well.
Heat 3 tbsp of butter to the frying pan. Swirl in the egg yolk and stir continuously.
You should see bubbles appearing in the pan.
Add in garlic, chilies and curry leaves. Continue to stir fry until fragrant.
Add in Nestum. Continue to stir, tossing everything together. Add pepper and salt.
Put in the prawns and continue to stir fry until the shrimps are well coated with the Nestum. Dish out and serve. Yummy!
