Cereal Prawn, 麦片虾, is easily the most commonly ordered dish at restaurants or zi char stalls in Singapore. Deep-fried, crispy prawns coated in buttered cereals with a kick of spice is simply, sinfully satisfying. This recipe calls for chilli padi and fresh curry leaves to elevate the already delicious sweet-savoury cereal batter. A drool-worthy favourite that you can now make at home!
