Clams in Caldine Paste #sikandalouscuisine
I have shared two Caldine recipes - my friend and chef par excellence Tanveer Kwatra shared a recipe using capsicum which I have added here , the flavors were amazing.
400 Grams Clams -Wash well do get rid of all dirt, then slit them open discarding the shell without clam.
1 Onion Chopped.
3-4 Teaspoons of Tamarind water - you don't want this sour , just a hint.
Caldine Curry Paste:
1 Capsicum - Roast on tawa / in oven till it begins to get soft, then remove seeds.
1/2 Measuring Cup Coriander Greens
1/2 Coconut Grated.
4-6 Green Chilies - I added 8.
1 Heaped Teaspoon Roasted Coriander Seeds.
1 Teaspoon Jeera .
4-6 Cloves Garlic.
In a wok saute onions till soft , then tip in the curry paste and cook covered for about 5-6 minutes.
Now add clams and imli , mix well cook covered for 5-6 minutes. You can add water if you want a gravy , I wanted this dry so didn't add any.
