Watch the step by step guide in our Youtube Channel! Happy Cooking! 🙂

Here are the ingredients.

  • 1 kg clams or halaan
  • Pechay or bok choy
  • 1 medium size onion
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 thumb size ginger
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • ½ tsp Pepper
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 500mL water
  • 2 tbsp Oil


  1. Clean the clams by soaking in water for 3-5 hours. The clams will naturally spit out the sands that they have collected.
  2. Heat the pan and put some oil. Saute the garlic, onion and ginger. Add the clams.
  3. Pour in the water. Cover and let it boil for 2 min. The clams will start to open and it means that they are cooked.
  4. Add the pechay. Season with salt and pepper. Add a bit of sugar just to enhance the taste. Cover and let it boil for another 2 mins.
