Dried Clam Rice(蛤干饭)

This is just another delicious variation of Oo Peng(Yam Rice), simple enough, the main ingredient here is this dried clam(蛤干).I don’t know whether you come across to this, at first I thought these was some kind of mushroom, it’s actually clam flesh that is been processed and dried. It certainly got the most unique taste, well I am not very fond of it, or any kind of shellfish. But together with this dish, it is divine.


  • 2 cups rice plus half cup of glutinous rice (pre-soaked)
  • handful of dried clam, half
  • 4 shittake mushrooms, cut into strip
  • 4 shallots, chopped
  • 100g of mince pork,
  • 2 dried bean curd, cubed
  • 6 tbs oil
  • 1 tbs dark soy sauce
  • hot broth

In a hot wok, fried shallot and mushroom with oil. Tumble in pork and bean curd, fried everything to good golden brown. Ladle everything out, leaving excess oil to fried the dried clam, you will smell the faint fragrance from these.

Drain the rice and stir in. Drip over the soy sauce and just cover the rice with water. Put on a lid and wait the rice to absorb all the liquid, when it’s done, return the fried meat, mushroom, shallot and bean curd into the rice, mix well.
