Clams in Red Masala

Adapted from my Clams in Green Masala , this too is a simple to make and delicious dish
400 Grams Clam - Wash them and wash them well - any sand / grit and you will ruin the dish.

3-4 Tablespoons Tamarind Pulp.
1. Onion Chopped.
Curry Leaves.
Dried Red Chilies
1/2 Teaspoon Kashmiri Mirch Powder ( for color )


This part is all andaaz/ approximates , the quantities will vary according to how pungent you like your food.
Soak 10 Dried Red Chilies in a bit of hot water for 1 hour. Then grind to a paste along with half a coconut ,10 cloves garlic ,1 teaspoon jeera . Grind to a paste . Add salt .

Heat 3-4 Tablespoons white oil in a wok , add curry leaves and dried red chilies - 20 seconds later add onions , cook 2 minutes till soft , next add masala and salt , cook covered ..slowly till oil separates , you will need to keep adding a bit of water .

Once done , add clams , mix gently and cook covered 5-7 minutes. At the end add some water to get the desired gravy , then add tamarind , cook 1-2 minutes allowing flavors to blend in . Came out fabulous .
