2 Cloves Garlic, chopped
2 to 3 Tbsp Thai Roasted Chili Paste

1 tsp Sugar or to taste
2 to 3 Thai Red Chili, slice thickly or crushed

In a large wok, heat the oil over high heat. Cook the garlic and chilies until fragrant and golden in color. Then add roasted chili paste and toss in the clams. Give it a quick stir and mix in the half of the Basil, fish sauce, and sugar. Give it another quick stir cover and cook until all the clams are open. Toss in the other half of Thai basil, mix well. Serve immediately.


  1. yum! the roasted chili paste sounds like a great thing to keep around!

  2. What kind of chilies do you use for the chili paste?

  3. Hi Ninette, the dried chili I used is red in color and slightly smaller than cayenne pepper. You can find the chili at most Asian grocers.

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.
