Kam Heong Style Lala - Clams

The best kam heong style clams which I had is at Ah Go Go restaurant in Kepong. I may be wrong, but after going around Kepong, I find that this restaurant can cook this style the best. Another best alternative would be B Lui at the Kepong wai sek kai, a hawker stall located in Kepong Baru. Anyway, here is the closest recipe I find which is good enough but definitely not the same with those you will get at the above mentioned restaurants. But it is good enough if you prefer to cook it yourself.

  • 1 kg clams such as lala clams
  • 2 tbsp dried shrimps
  • 1/4 cup hot water
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • 2 tbsp cooking oil
  • 3 shallots finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 ginger slices minced
  • 2 chilli padi
  • 1/2 tbsp soy bean paste
  • 4 sprigs curry leaves
  • cornstarch
  1. Clean the clams thoroughly by soaking with salt water and scrubbing them.
  2. Chop the dried shrimps, shallots, garlic, ginger chilli padi together.
  3. Heat up the oil and pour in the ingredients including the soy bean paste, hot water and curry powder.
  4. Pour in the clams and cook until the clams are all open.
  5. Mix in the curry leaves and cornstarch.
  6. Serve warm.
