Golden Salted Egg Yolk Cornflakes 黄金鹹蛋黄玉米片

Salted egg yolk, butter,  curry leaves and chili padi are perfect combo. Any recipe won't go wrong when using these ingredients.  When i saw my friend made this, what a brilliant idea, combine all these ingredients with cornflakes. These cornflakes are so addictive , crunchy, salty, sweet, curry aroma and a hint of spicy, so good !

Using homegrown curry leaves and chili padi, so aromatic!

Make sure you mash the steamed salted egg yolk as fine as possible so it can evenly coated on cornflakes. I didn't mash it fine still look coarse like below, then i noticed my cornflakes still have some bits of salted egg yolk left with it.

I used cornflakes that bought from bakery ingredients shop.

The original recipe didn't include the step of baking cornflakes. I decided to bake the cornflakes so it taste more crispy .

This snack is very additive ! can't stop munching it! perfect to enjoy during CNY!

I find the taste a bit sweet, maybe due to the type of cornflakes i used. If you prefer less sweet, you may reduce sugar amount (~20g). Also if you prefer stronger salted egg yolk taste, you may increase 1-2 more eggs.
