Chili cornflakes

I had a few box of corn flakes at home which have only about 2 to 3 months of shelf life left. Eat cornflakes everyday? Make cornflakes cookies? I didn't have time to do all that so I gave my colleague a box to experiment with and guess what?


The results of her experiment was successfully!

She made chili, fried ikan bilis and brown groundnuts and mix them all together with the cornflakes. She let it soak up all the chili and kept the chili cornflakes air tight. A really good home made snack!!!

[Edit Tuesday 15 July 2008]
Since I received a few emails asking for the recipe, here goes.

- 1 small bottle of chili boh
- 5 shallots, dices finely
- 5 cloves of garlic, dices finely
- Sugar and salt to taste
- Ikan bilis
- Groundnuts

1. Fry groundnuts in oil until golden brown. Set aside
2. Fry ikan bilis until golden brown. Set aside.
3. Reuse the ikan bilis oil, heat oil and add shallots and garlic.
4. Add chili boh and stir until fragrant. Or until the red chili oil starts to rise.
5. Add sugar and salt to taste and add a little water to dissolve the sugar. Stir.
6. Test the consistency of the chili by dipping a piece of cornflakes in it. The chili should stick to the cornflakes without turning it soggy. Add more water is too thick, or reduce to preferred thickness.
7. When ready, turn off the fire and stir in corn flakes. Let to cool.
8. Mix groundnuts, ikan bilis and the chili corn flakes in a bottle and store air tight.
