Butter Prawns

This is one of Malaysians' favourite. I've been trying to find out how the chefs in my favourite seafood restaurant prepare this dish. After hard work of googling and youtubeing (I like that sound), I found this one simple dish and easy to make Butter Prawns.
7-8 big prawns, deep fried, drained
1 egg yolk,beat
2 tbsp of butter (I used Planta, and it smells great!)
curry leaves
2 tbsp of evaporated milk
garlic, chillies, chopped finely
salt, sugar to taste

To make the egg floss:
1. Melt the butter and add a little cooking oil
2. Keep stirring, until the butter melt
3. As you are stirring, add the egg yolk and keep stirring. You will see the yolk turns into fine floss.
4. Drain. Leave aside.
5. Next, heat 1 tbsp of butter and a little oil.
6. Fry the garlic, chillies and curry leaves.
7. Then, add in prawns and mix well.
8. Add in evaporated milk, not too many or else the prawns will become soggy and watery.
9. Add in salt and sugar. Mix well.
10. Put the prawns on a plate and sprinkle them with egg floss.
