Festive dish - Mushroom Clams

It was my first attempt cooking this Mushroom Clams. This is one of my favourite dish during CNY. Needless to say, mushroom is always a famous dish during festival and it always goes well with abalone, clams or scallop. Yesterday I try to cook it myself. It is simple to cook actually and simply taste good.

Ingredients (3-4 person):

1 can Clams
16 pieces medium size Mushroom (soak overnight)
4-5 pieces medium size Scallops
¼ piece chicken breast meat / 1 drumstick (optional: pork lean meat)

Small piece of Ginger
4 slices Garlic (chop fine)
3 tablespoon Cooking Oil
1 pinch of Sugar

800ml Water
Salt to taste

Steps to cook:-
  1. Heat the wok, pour in oil and stir fried garlic.
  2. Put in mushroom and ginger. Stir fried till fragrant.
  3. Scoop up everything from the wok and put into a pot to boil.
  4. Add in water, turn to low fire when boil for 2 hours.
  5. 35 minutes later, add in sugar, meat and scallops.
  6. Check the water level, if started to get less can add in water.
  7. Continue boil till the mushroom is soft and tender. You can now smell the fragrant mushroom broth.
  8. Add in clams and the soup from the can quarter to half (preferrable), salt and boil for another 5 minutes. Note: DO NOT boil long after add in clams, you will find the clams hard if overcooked.
