Kam Heong Clams

   

Kam Heong Clams

I have an excess of curry leaves and decided to stir fry lala clams kam heong style – a truly Malaysian dish. Kam heong (金香) is Cantonese dialect and literally translate as “golden fragrance”. The spice blend includes dried shrimps, curry powder, shallots and garlic. This sauce is frequently used to stir fry crabs, chicken, prawns and in this recipe, lala clams. The aroma of the curry powder and curry leaves really stand out in this dish. I literally lick the sauce off the shells, so good. Lala clams is cheap (I paid about $3 for 1kg) and fast to cook (about 2 minutes), so it’s really economical to cook this at home as compared to ordering it outside.

    Wow such pretty pictures! Perfect lighting to show texture and I like how you even have all the veggies divided up in groups on the cutting board.

    Yay lala clams! This dish must be really really good. A combination of lala clam and tauco. In Indonesia we call kerang batik for lala clam.

    Clams are a favorite of mine! I wish I could find curry leaves here, and I’ve looked everywhere. Maybe I need to grow them myself!

    Well I really don’t like clams at all, but you managed to make this dish look inviting and appetizing. In fact I would probably try it just because it looks so good! :D

      I bought them from the wet market, cheaper and fresher. The ones at supermarkets are usually slightly more expensive.
