Hi assalamualaikum everyone!
Initially I wanted to bake cornflakes cookies but I couldn’t find any flour around my area. Even online grocery sites are out of stock too. I ended up making spicy crunchy cornflakes or in Malay, we call it kudapan cornflakes. Some might call it cornflakes bercili (cili is chili).
I don’t really measure my ingredients when I cook. I agak-agak (estimate).
1 box of cornflakes (i used medium size, 250g)
curry leaves (the more the better)
6-7tsp curry powder (you can use either chicken or fish curry powder. i use baba’s chicken curry powder)
1tbsp of sugar
1/2 tsp of salt
roasted peanut (optional)
sliced garlics (optional)
6-8 dried chilies (cut slanting)
olive oil (or any type of oil)
1. Put 2tbsp of oil into your hot wok and fry your cornflakes batch by batch (this step is to make sure your cornflakes be extra crunchy & crispy). Fry for about a minute for each batch and put aside.
2. Fry the sliced garlics, dried chilies and curry leaves together, medium heat. Once fried, put aside.
3. Sangai (a method of cooking whereby spices are fried without using oil) curry powder, sugar and salt at the same time in a very low heat. Once the color changes, add in cornflakes, curry leaves, dried chilies and sliced garlic.
4. Turn off the stove, and let it cool at a bowl.
This is my spicy crunchy cornflakes, approved by my aunt, sister-in-law and dad. Hope you guys try it at home!
