  • 1 Begin by flavoring the prawns with salt and pepper before dredging it in cornstarch. Now, get a saucepan ready and make it nice and hot over medium to medium high heat. Pour cooking oil in and when hot enough, deep fry the prawns. Cook until the color changes. Remove and drain the prawns and allow to sit in a plate lined with paper towels to drain off excess oil. Set this aside
  • 2 Get a saute pan ready and make it nice and hot over medium heat. Melt the butter and throw in the garlic, curry or chili leaves and chilies. Cook until the leaves are crispy.

  • 4 Return the fried prawns into the pan, toss until they are evenly coated with the sauce. And that's it! All you need is a big serving of rice because this restaurant quality food is now ready to be enjoyed by the whole family. It's simply delicious!
