Sticky Rice with Durian Recipe

Ingredients :

    • 300 g (11/2 cups) uncooked glutinous rice, soaked overnight, rinsed and drain
    • 750 ml (3 cups) coconut cream
    • 300 g (11/2 cups) sugar
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 ripe durian (about 750 g/11/2 lbs) for about 2 cups of flesh

Method :

    1. Line a bamboo steamer with a cheesecloth and spread the rice evenly on it. Steam for 20 minutes, then turn the rice over and steam for 10 more minutes until cooked. Transfer to another big bowl and smooth its surface to level with a wet wooden spoon. Do not pack the rice.
    2. Combine the coconut cream, sugar and salt in a bowl. Stir until the sugar is dissolved and set aside.
    3. While the rice is still hot, pour 1/2 of the coconut cream mixture over it and cover with a lid, then set aside for 10 minutes. Uncover and fold the rice with a wet wooden spoon from top to bottom to get an even texture. Cover and set aside again.
    4. Add the durian flesh to the bowl of the remaining coconut cream mixture. Stir to mix well.
    5. To serve, portion the rice into serving bowls and top with the durian coconut cream mixture. Serve warm or at room temperature.
