Prawns, Cooking With Quaker Oats

You can create wonders using cereal, from a fuss-free hearty breakfast to baking & even whipping up a meal. Since my Japanese guest is a seafood lover, I decided to introduce him to one of Singapore’s most popular dish – Cereal Prawns, using Quaker Oats.
1/2 kg Medium or Big Prawns
3 Sprigs of curry leaves (remove sprig)
3 Chilli Padi (chopped/sliced)
5 tbsp Quaker Oats
1 tbsp milk powder
2 tbsp butter
1 tsp Garlic (minced)
½ Egg
1 tbsp flour
Cooking oil
  1. De-vein & slit open fully, the back of the prawns.
  2. Whisk egg & mix with prawns.
  3. Add flour & stir well.
  4. Heat oil & deep-fry prawns. Drain & set aside. Melt butter. Add in curry leaves, garlic & chili padi. Cook on small fire till fragrant.
  5. Mix milk powder with cereal & add into wok.
  6. Stir well & throw in prawns. Stir-fry briefy & you’ll get a delicious plate of Cereal Prawns.
