To marinade the chicken, add light soy sauce to the bite size chicken in a bowl.
Then add turmeric powder.

Mix everything together. Set aside for at least 30 minutes.
Then heat up some oil in a wok or non stick pan.
Deep fry the marinated chicken till cooked through or until golden brown.
Drain the chicken on paper towel and set aside.
Next prepare ingredients to fry the chicken.
In a non stick pan or wok, melt the butter.
Then add chopped shallots.
Next add the curry leaves and chopped bird eye’s chilli (optional).
When the leaves are crisped, add the nestum cereal.
And the sugar.
Then add salt to taste. Stir fry on medium heat until the nestum cereal is golden brown and crispy.
Add the fried chicken to this and toss well till the chicken is coated with a crisp layer of cereal, about 2 minutes.
Arrange the nestum chicken on a serving plate and top additional crispy cereal over it.
Garnish with green onions and red chillies. Serve the butter cereal chicken warm with steamed rice.
Incorporating chicken, cereal, curry leaves and butter certainly makes for a great tasty dish.
And best of all, it’s DONE in just 25 minutes.
SO … ENJOY!
