Butter Cornflakes Cereal Shrimps


15 large shrimps, deveined
Cornstarch to coat the shrimps before deep-frying
4 Tbsp. butter

3-5 bird eye chilies, sliced
A handful of curry leaves (omit this if you can't find it)

1 cup of cornflakes, lightly crushed
3 Tbsp. non-dairy creamer
(powder form)
1 1/2 tsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. chicken stock granules (add more salt if omit this)
Dash of white pepper


1. Measure and mix (B) in a bowl. Set aside.

2. Coat the shrimps with cornflour and deep-fry in hot oil until golden and cooked. Dish out and set aside. Throw away the oil.

3. Heat wok, add in the butter, stir til it melted and add (A). Fry til fragrant. Then add (B), stir continuously to mix (be careful not to burn the creamer) and add the shrimps. Mix well and dish out to serve. Enjoy!

This dish is spicy from the chili and infuse with the fragrant of butter, curry leaves & milk and crunchy bite from the cornflakes and a tad sweet from the sugar, definitely worth a try!

Love your recipes! Just a quick the non-dairy creamer in powder(Coffeemate pwdr) or liquid form? Dying to try this recipe as the other ones I've seen on the net use Nestum which is very expensive here in Canada, abt C$8! As u can see, cornflakes are much cheaper!! Thanks.

Thanks BBOven! This dish is sure finger licking good. :)

You're so welcome Anon. I just updated my recipe, it's powder form (any brand would do, just make sure it's original without added flavor). Haha...I don't even know what is Nestum. My cheaper version works as good! ;)

Thanks Andaliman.

You're welcome D and V!

Yes Beachlover, try this when you come back, it's good.

oh my goodness. I love this style of prawns- love to order it in restaurants. maybe it is time to start the deep frying action.. hmmm

Hi Daphne,
If you don't want to deep-fry, you can stir-fry the shrimps in a little more oil. ;)

Hi Ching
Thanks for sharing this recipe. Tried it out last nite and used garlic instead of chilli padi; seared instead of deepfry and i even soaked some of the cereal in milk, cos i dun have powdered creamer. So mine ended being Butter Garlic Cereal Prawns instead, LOL.
But delicious, all the same...
Thanks again for sharing :-)
