Bamboo Clam In Black Bean Paste

Friday night dinner was rice porridge serve with stir-fried bamboo clam & sizchuan veg w/shredded pork. Two very heavy taste dishes that go so well with plain porridge.

I bought the frozen bamboo clam from NTUC at promo price $4.75/pkt. My aunt stir-fried it with black bean paste & chilli. So delicious... but the washing of the clam is quite hectic as it contains a lot of sand.

It's taste like those Lala serve in teochew porridge stall. She even make a chilli flower for me to garnish the dish for photo taking. Thanks Aunt!
