This is my favorite all time dessert! I love the sticky rice texture with the sweet and creamy blend of coconut milk and yummy durian fruit. If you wondering what kind of fruit durian is…well let just put it this way. It is an acquired taste. Neither you love it or hate. It have a very strong smell that some whom love it will say it pleasant and yummy smell and for those that hates it will say that it is stink! Durian is a spiky on the outside and yellow creamy flesh in the inside. It is consider an exotic Asian fruit that plentiful in all over Southeast Asian. And it also not good to over indulge in it, because it supposed to make you feel hot inside. Pregnant women are caution in eating too much of this fruit, it can causes heartburn. This learnt this is from experiences.
I personally grew up with this acquired taste and loved it. I can’t tell you enough how much love eating this fruit and all that made out of it. That why I do cherish and looking forward to this dessert every time I made. Of course it help, that my kids and husband love it too. That way I won’t be the only one indulging in it and gain the excess weight. Those of you who had this dessert before and enjoyed it, you know what I mean. Just love that creamy coconut-durian over nice, hot sticky rice. This is one of those dessert you have to eat with your eyes closed and let the flavor rolls off your tongue, because it is that good!
