Kam Heong Lala~Pipi~Clams


'Kam Heong' means fragrant, be it lala, pipi or clams, they are the same.  I love these, more so if they're done with chllies, spicy but then again it's artery-clogging.  So, I just console myself, dig in first, and swim more later!



Wash and blanch the clams in hot water for just a short while.  Dish out and drain.
Heat up the wok with some oil, bird eye chillies, garlic, ginger and dried shrimps.


Toss in some home grown curry leaves, stir-fry, then toss in the blanched clams.  Then you'll get this ......





This is real yummy, I can gobble up this whole plate all by myself!

Ingredients
  • 1 Kg clams
  • 40 gm dried shrimps - washed and chopped
  • 20 gm garlic - chopped
  • 10 gm ginger - chopped
  • 2 bird's eye chillies - cut
  • curry leaves
  • 3 tsp sugar
  • 1 Tbsp dark soya sauce
  • 2 tsp tau cheong/preserved bean paste
  • 2 Tbsp oil for frying
  • Salt to taste
Preparation
  1. Heat up a pot of water and while waiting for it to boil, wash the clams a few times to get rid of dirt.  Drain and set aside.
  2. Blanch the washed clams in the boiling water for a short while, dish out, drain.
  3. Heat up oil in a wok, stir-fry the garlic, ginger, dried shrimps, chillies and curry leaves.
  4. Add in the preserved bean paste and stir-fry till fragrant.
  5. Add in the blanched clams, sugar, dark soya sauce and salt to taste.  Sprinkle in some water if necesary.
  6. Once all the clams have opened up, this dish is ready.
  7. Dish out  onto a plate.
  8. Serve hot with rice or eaten on its own.

  1. I love seafood cook in Kam Heong style. Too bad we can't get this type of lala here and other clams are too expensive especially those with thick shells. Not worth eating it. So have to eat this only when I am back in Malaysia :)

    Are clams readily available in your area? It's a good idea to try it.

Wool Roll Bread ~ 毛线球面包

  Wool Roll Bread ... its popularity is booming and bursting the seams of Facebook and Instagram.  Every day you see new posts of it, with different ways of making it as well as an endless assortment of fillings to experiment with.  I too have been browsing the internet to research these various methods and their outcomes.  What is it that makes Wool Woll Bread so crazily popular?  To satisfy my curiosity, I tried my hand at making it and was very happy with the results.  I love seeing the bread strands when I pull apart the bread to reveal the meat floss filling and I enjoy how soft and chewy the bread is.  Jump on the bandwagon, folks, you won't regret it! Wool Roll Bread ~  毛线球面包 (adapted from 'here' with adjustments) Ingredients 300 gm high protein flour or bread flour 30 gm sugar 1 tsp seasalt 1 egg  (55 gm or 65 gm) 70 or 80 ml milk 25 gm melted butter Egg wash (1 whole egg + 1.1/2 tsp water to dilute) Meat floss or whatever you wish to use as filling 80 ml warm mil

Marble Butter Cake ~ 大理石牛油蛋糕

This is one of the most popular Butter Cake recipes among fellow bloggers and I've read many reviews about this cake.  Credit must be given to Mrs S K Ng for so generously sharing her recipe.   This cake is moist, fluffy, soft, not overly sweet and the texture is just right.  Must admit that this is the best butter cake that I've ever tasted.  I tweaked the recipe to make a Marble Butter Cake instead. So glad to see that there weren't any cracks on the surface although it rose slightly in the middle.

Coffee Walnut Butter Cake ~ 咖啡核桃牛油蛋糕

  This Coffee Walnut Butter cake recipe is adapted from my Marble Butter Cake which I posted some time back.  I tweaked it a bit to accommodate blended walnuts, added some coffee and Kahlua liqueur.  As always, Mrs. Ng's butter cake recipe never fails and this cake is soft and moist and indeed yummy.
