For the past 1 week my kitchen has smells of only DURIAN the King Fruit!
I think it's Durian craze in Sarawak. How about in the Semenanjung, I wonder? :D
This is among one of my favorite fruits, although none of my family members eat this fruit as much as I do ha ha... Can you imagine the smell of Me now?
As Aya says,' Oma and her Durian!' :p
I cannot resist these...can you??
I love them raw... and except for Noormy the rest of the family only love them made into Fried 'Tempoyak'.
So I did that too... Do you eat Fried 'Tempoyak'?
This afternoon too I had opened up 5 more Durians and made some more 'Tempoyak' . Hubby came back from Bekenu & Niah and bought some more of it. In Miri town they are selling by kilogram, that means weighing and it can goes up to RM15 - RM20 per kilo. With skin and all! But if you go to these rural areas you can buy 4 buah Durian for RM15 only.
And hubby is good in bargaining :D
So let Mak isah open up this January of the New Year 2012 of the Dragon with the King Fruit.
p/s. To make 'Tempoyak, just peel off flesh of the Durian into a container, add salt and sugar to taste. I keep my container of Durian out for a day before storing it into my fridge.
To fry, in a pan of some hot cooking oil, add some grounded small red onions, some garlic and red chillies. Add some anchovies or even fresh peeled prawns.
Add the amount of Tempoyak you need and stir well. Add salt & sugar to taste.
Enjoy with your other dishes.
