Prawns with salted egg yolk

I got this yummy recipe from Jo. I revised a bit myself though. It's simple and the taste is superb. I was given a 9/10 by Dear dear.

1. 3 tbsp butter
2. Tiger prawns
3. 2 stalks of curry leaves
4. 3-4 salted egg yolk
5. Evaporated Milk (Depending on what texture you would like to have for the sauce)
6. Tapioca flour
7. Bird’s eye chillies, chopped
8. 1/2 a tsp salt or to taste
9. 1/2 a tsp pepper
10.1 and 1/2 - 2 tsp sugar


1. Cut a slit on the back of the prawns to devein it.

2. Steam salted egg yolks for 3-4 minutes. Remove and use a fork to break up the egg yolks.

3. Toss prawns in tapioca flour. Pan fry in a little amount of oil till golden in colour. Remove and leave aside.

4. Melt butter in a wok, sauté curry leaves and bird’s eye chillies until aromatic. Add salted egg yolks, keep stirring until egg yolks are incorporated into the butter sauce. 5. Add pepper, salt, sugar and evaporated milk then stir in pre-fried prawns.

Stir-fry briskly to mix.

5. Dish out and serve immediately.

This is my "assistant" hahahaha.. Dear Dear took over to stir fry the prawns when the cranky little Xavier cried for me.

A simple and must-try recipe !!!

oh~~ interesting! Is it spicy? If I exclude the chili will it taste the same? Have to take into consideration the little one who is still not into spicy food yet.

Jenn, the chilli can be omited. Perhaps replace big chillies which is not as spicy as the chilli padi.
