Kam Heong Lala (Golden Fragrant Clam)

Kam Heong Lala (Golden Fragrant Clam)

 Kam heong (金香) is Cantonese dialect and literally translate to golden (kam) and fragrant (heong).

Originating from Malaysia, this dish incorporates ingredients from Malay, Chinese, and Indian cooking, showcasing the country’s unique culinary style of mixing cultures and ingredients.

Kam Heong dishes get their distinctive flavour from curry leaves and curry powder. A fusion of aromatics and succulent meat, coupled with the clam juices, it is known for its deep and rich fragrant that is super umami. 

The aromatic spice blend is versatile, it is  also great for stir frying crabs, chicken, and prawn. It goes really well with white rice.

I have prepared a step-by-step video for you, enjoy cooking!
