Fried LaLa Bee Hoon (Fried Rice Vermicelli With Clams)



This is one of my favorite stir-fry rice vermicelli with clams or known as Fried LaLa Bee Hoon in Hokkien dialect. It's a popular dish in Malaysia, and yet it's so easy to make it at home. Here, I have used frozen clams, but you can always opt for fresh clams, if available.




Fried LaLa Bee Hoon (Mee Hoon) (Fried Rice Vermicelli With Clams)

Ingredients

225 grams (about 1/2 lb) Frozen Clams W/Juice
200 grams Rice Vermicelli, soak according to manufacture’s instructions and drain well
200 grams Bean Sprouts, washed and drained
200 grams (4 to 5 pieces) Napa Cabbage, sliced
4 Tbsp Peanut or Vegetable Oil
3 Large Eggs
1/2 Yellow Onion, halved & sliced
3 Cloves of Garlic, peeled and coarsely chopped
1 tsp Chopped Ginger
1/2 Cup of Chicken Stock
2 Tbsp Shaoxing Wine
1 Tbsp Light Soy Sauce
2 to 3 Tbsp Dark Soy Sauce, preferably Dark Caramel
Sea Salt, to taste
Some Ground White Pepper, to taste

Method

Heat peanut oil a large wok over medium high heat. Add ginger and garlic until stir-fry until golden in color. Turn the heat to high and mix in the eggs. Cook until the eggs are set.

Then add yellow onion and give it a quick stir. Mix in the cabbage, rice vermicelli, clam juice, light soy sauce, and dark soy sauce. Mix until well combine and season with salt and pepper. 
Use a tong and spatula to mix the rice vermicelli into the sauce. When the sauce is almost dry, mix in the bean sprouts and clams. Continue to stir-fry until all the ingredients are well mix and the bean sprouts are just cooked, and adjust the seasoning with sea salt. Serve warm.

Note: Fresh Clams, 1 Kg (Steamed and remove the meat and strain the liquid)

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
