of cereal prawns and kangkung belacan

ive got a very easy recipe to share... the process can be a lil tedious especially if you hate frying! cos i really hate it... the oil pops everywhere!! massive tidy up after that...

anyway, i found a packet of instant cereals especially for cereal prawns. read the instructions and ingredients printed behind the packet and found it to be pretty easy peasy.


#STEP 1: ingredients! a pack of instant cereal mix, prawns, curry leaves, red chillies.

#STEP 2: ensure prawns are dried up using kitchen towel, massage some corn flour onto them, heat oil and throw them all in to fry! prawns cook very fast, so just toss them around for about 3 mins and dish up. line the bowl with kitchen towel to absorb the oil.

(p/s: oil pops when there's moisture!)

#STEP 3: Clean wok and toss curry leaves and red chillies in till fragrant.

#STEP 4: Pour prawns and toss them with the curry leaves and chillies.

#STEP 5: pour the whole packet of instant cereal mix. toss and mix with prawns on low heat. dish up after well mixed.

p/s: dont mix too long else cereal burns due to heat.


kangkung belacan:
#1- saute chopped onions with red chillies till fragrant.
#2- mix spoonful of belacan with water till there's no residue. pour in the wok.
#3- put kangkung leaves in and stir fry till fragrant and cooked.
#4- dish up and serve!

yummz :)

Fuiyoh! Salute you la...going through so much trouble to cook a decent meal. Lol. Next time try pounding/blending the belacan with chillies and garlic before frying. Then u don't have to mix with so much water, and you get a less watery dish. Just a suggestion = )

calvin: haha, i almost forgotten about the salty kangkung eiling cooked! thanks for reminding ;)

eiling: lalala my cooking is better than yours!

kahyee: i have to feed everyone well since mom is away. haha. actually i wanted to make it more watery cos usually my mom's kangkung dish has a lot of gravy for us to eat with rice. ehehe, thanks for the suggestion though!!
