You could club Clams Dry with pao, bread or rice. I had made goan sorak curry, dry clams and steamed rice. we relished all food. Thankfully we all love sea food back home.

Mostly clam shells are used along with the clam meat in curries. However for this clams dry version you require only the clam meat. Generally clams or mussels consist a lot of muddy particles hence important to clean them thoroughly under tap water.

My mother boils the clam with little salt for 4-5 mins or until clams open their mouth. If you find any clams not opening boil them for some more time, if still doesn’t open then discard them. Sometimes you would also find sand or mud in clams so throw such clams.
