HomeEasy RecipesSup Kerang Darah (Blood Cockle Clear Soup) RecipeMarch 10, 2011150ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsAppLinkedinReddItEmailPrintTelegramMixLINEAnother childhood soup that I love so much and didn’t have it for years. The idea of this soup is the same as sayur bening bayam merah (red amaranth clear soup). The different is just added in garlic to my Sup Kerang Darah (Blood Cockle Clear Soup).

These clams are also perfect to dip into Saus Nanas Kacang (Pineapple Peanut Sauce) before you chow down them. At the end, you can drink the soup. Or you can always turn the other way around by drinking the soup first, open up the clams and enjoy them. If you enjoy how fragrant fingerrot (temukunci) is, you will love this soup.

Fingerrot (temukunci or known as krachai in Thai)) can be found in fresh, frozen, dry and powder forms at Asian stores in Winnipeg.
