Durian Potong – 3 ingredients

Durian Potong – 3 ingredients

I have a confession: I don’t like durian. When I was a kid, I would run upstairs when my whole family eats this pungent fruit and I forbid them from keeping any leftovers in the fridge. It wasn’t until recently that decided to learn how to appreciate what people refer to as king of fruits; it proves to be a difficult undertaking! But I’ve always like durian dodol and durian potong so it’s a good start. This durian season, I’ve been thinking of ways to create durian-infused dessert to appeal to those who love or hate durian. My first successful try: homemade durian potong!

I’ve browsed through several recipes on the Internet but didn’t find one I really like. It is said that coconut milk gives it more ‘fragrance’ so I decided to use that instead of cow’s milk. However, using coconut milk alone made the mixture too thick so I had to I add some cow’s milk. My durian potong turned out delicious, creamy and filled with durian goodness. I would say it’s better than store-bought ones (and not as sweet)!

SHORT RECIPE

Cook 200 g durian fresh + 250 ml coconut cream + 100 ml milk + 4 tbsp sugar on low fire. Mix well with a whisk. Pour cooled mixture into popsicle mold. Freeze until firm.


COOKING TIPS

  • You can get the popsicle mold from Daiso for only RM 5, or at IKEA
  • This recipe makes just enough for my 400 ml popsicle mold.
  • Most recipes calls for sugar. As I’m making it for elderly who have diabetes and the durian was sweet enough, I decided to omit the sugar. If you want it to taste of those you bought in store, add sugar. Most people will probably like it that way.
  • If your sole intention is to make the popsicle and not because you have extra fruits left from a durian party, it’s more convenient to buy packet durian from the supermarket.
  • To unmold the popsicles easily, immerse it in a bowl of water for a few minutes. The popsicle may be difficult to remove otherwise.
  • To make pretty popsicles, remember to ensure there’s no air bubbles between the mixture and wipe off excess durian mixture before freezing (I didn’t)

Enjoy!
