king of fruit



durian....
Durian can best be described as having a succulent, creamy filling but smelling like stinky socks - don't let that dissuade you from trying it.

People have different ways of picking durian fruit, to see if it's ready to eat. My parents like to smell the bottom of the stem. If it emits a strong smell, then it's ready to consume. Some people prefer the tapping method. Hitting the fruit with a stick and hearing the appropriate slightly-hollow "thunk" sound. Of course, this is something you'd have to learn from a durian...
My parents usually lay out newspaper on their kitchen floor in order to cut the fruit in half using a cleaver. It will reveal four seeds covered in pale yellow flesh. You dig out a giant seed and proceed to suck the creamy flesh. Beware, it's very filling. Durian, if you can stand the smell, has a delectable, sweet flavour. For me, it's akin to vanilla pudding...haha..i like it..

nowaday durian has various type...also used to flavour candy, cakes, mousse, chips, ice cream and milkshakes. There's a dish, pulut durian, of glutinous rice steamed with coconut milk and served with ripe durian..this is my parents favourite..

i the most our family likes is Sambal Tempoyak is a dish composed of fermented durian, coconut milk and the ultra-spicy sambal sauce...with ikan patin...yummy...
