Everything You Need to Know About Durian

We know how some people are frenzy and fanatical when when it comes to durian but is what is that everything else that we need to know? Here is another good read by Helen Trickle who has previously blogged as a guest here on Foodeverywhere. This article is plenty of what else you don’t know about durian.

There are over 400 different varieties of the Durian: 300 of these are native to Thailand, whilst 100 of these are native to Malaysia. The Durian that is grown in Malaysia is the most prized variant, and this ‘king of fruits’ is also often called the world’s most divisive fruits. The Malaysian Musang King is left to ripen naturally on the tree, and then caught by nets just above the ground so that the taste is as strong and distinctive as possible. Here we explore everything you need to know about the durian, and discover why this fruit has a reputation that follows it all around the world:

Experiencing Durian Outside of Malaysia

Durian reached British supermarket shelves for the first time in 2014 where it received plenty of press thanks to its distinctive smell: The Guardian newspaper described its smell as being like ‘rotten smelly onions’. Other people have likened the smell to being like rotting meat or gym socks that have been worn for several workouts. Its distinctive smell makes exporting the fruit difficult: it cannot be transported via commercial airliner thanks to the most recent rules surrounding transporting fruits through airport security. The fruit is also banned on Singapore’s rail network and from dozens of hotels in South-East Asia. In order to ensure that the Musang King Durian makes its way to the UK, it is vacuum packed the same day that it is pick. This will secure the smell inside the packaging until the vacuum is opened: the fruits are then transported via freight provider and protected by suitable transit insurance, until they reach the UK, and the London store that sells them. From this point, you’re on your own; open the fruit in the garden or in a well-ventilated area to avoid suffering with the smell for weeks after you’ve eaten the fruit!

Why Do People Love Durian?

With such a negative reputation for its distinctive smell then, why do people love Durian? And why have Malaysians crowned it the King of Fruits? The flesh of the fruit has an ambrosial, custardy quality. In terms of both its texture and taste, the durian is often compared to other tropical fruits, the coconut and the banana. Whilst the smell of the fruit is decidedly savoury, the taste of the flesh is very sweet which is appealing to individuals with a sense of adventure and a refined palette. Sweet and very creamy is the best way to describe the taste and texture of the durian flesh. Durian is a must-try for food lovers, and can be used in a wide variety of different recipes, from ice cream to risotto. However true durian lovers (and its important to remember that Malaysia is a nation of durian devotees) simply choose the eat the flesh straight from the spiky husk, and they simply can’t get enough of it. Outside of Asia, durian is an underutilised fruit, and it is exciting to see its worldwide popularity rising. Durian makes a wonderful dessert, thanks to its vitamin rich health properties, whilst still tasting sweet and rich, ideal for conventional sugar addicts. Much like the avocado though, the durian is also high in fat and carbohydrates, meaning that it should be an occasional treat rather than a daily indulgence. Finally, it’s important to note that if you do choose to indulge in a large plate of creamy durian, you should never consume alcohol alongside it: researchers have discovered that the sulfur compounds in durian affect the way in which the body metabolizes alcohol, meaning that your body will react very badly to the alcohol when it is consumed in conjunction with durian. Keep the two indulgences separate. Still not convinced to take the plunge and try durian? Just do it already! Whilst the fruit is divisive, you may be lucky enough to fall into the camp of people that would walk a hundred miles for a taste of its delicious flesh. And if you don’t, then all is not lost: you may well find that the taste grows on you as your palette changes and matures. If at first you don’t succeed then try again: the taste of this delicious fruit is well worth perseverance.

“How to Achieve Healthy Malaysian Eating” by guest writter- Helen Trickle

 

If you follow me on instagram, it is obvious that I am all into clean eating despite the nature of my job. The common question I am getting all the time is how do I plan my meals with all the food tasting and the clear cut answer to that is eating correctly. I eat as clean as possible when I am not at a food review and today, we have a useful article by Helen Trickle and here is something that’s not only a good read but hopefully a piece of useful information to our readers.

 

How to Achieve Healthy Malaysian Eating

 

Malaysian food is some of the most delicious cuisine in the world. Unfortunately it also has a reputation for being a relatively high fat, unhealthy food type. This is because many Malaysian recipes call for foods to be fried, and oils and saturated fats are prevalent. What’s more, the lure of street foods mean that when you leave the house you’re likely to find cheap options for oily, rich and sweet foods tempting you from every corner. Whilst these things are fine in moderation, if you are eating them on a daily basis then you’re likely to run into trouble! It’s for this reasons that Malaysians are not considered to be a healthy nation.

 

If you are looking to detox, cleanse your system of some of the fats and additives we all consume on a daily basis, and maybe even lose a pound or two, then here are some healthy alternatives, and some of the healthier Malaysian food options currently available:

 

Delicious and Healthy Recipe Options

 

If you’re a fan of eating out then the good news is that there are plenty of healthy options now emerging in our most popular restaurants. You’ll also find healthy juice bars and natural cafes popping up all over Malaysian towns and cities. Unfortunately, healthy eating outside of the home does not come cheap. With prices differing slightly around the Klang Valley, you can expect to pay an average of around 20RMB for a bowl full of salad.

 

This leads us to choosing to eat at home, which would be a better option for both your bank balance and your waistline, if you can fit it into your busy schedule. You don’t need to buy fancy and fashionable ‘superfood ingredients’: just choose simple dishes cooked well. When they are in season, grilled tomatoes taste sweet, rich and delicious, and make the basis of a great lunch. A simple salad dressing can be whipped up by mixing lemon juice with a drop of oil and some of your favourite herbs and spices, which will make you want to eat salad on a daily basis!

 

The point is that healthy eating doesn’t have to taste boring, and you can still love food and eat well at the same time. Grill some fresh fish and serve with fragrant rice. BBQ thick slices of pineapple and serve up with a generous dollop of yoghurt for the healthy dessert. Head to your local market and appreciate the nutritional content of our local produce: you’ll find so much colour, flavour, and variety to enjoy that is grown right here. Traditional Malaysian vegetables such as kai lan, bayam, and taugeh are affordable, easy to cook, and will quickly become firm favourites if you experiment with them in your own kitchen.

 

The Benefits of Clean Eating

 

Eating cleanly is a great idea if you have been overindulging of late: clean eating is a form of gentle and holistic detoxification ideal for weight loss, cleansing, and ridding your body of toxins (often retained as a result of alcohol consumption, excessive sugar intake, and substance abuse). The principles of clean eating are universal and can be achieved in any culture: simply opt for a diet rich in delicious fruits and vegetables. You can choose to eat them raw or, if you prefer them cooked, then simply boil or steam them lightly without adding an fat or additional unnecessary salt, sugar, or additives.

 

Sugar is incredibly cheap in Malaysia (because of its abundance) meaning that it is an ingredient used in many recipes , and our palette has slowly adapted so that we crave sweet flavours. Overcoming a sugar addiction can be difficult, and naturally sweet foods (including high sugar fruits such as mango and pineapple) are a great, healthy way to deal with cravings. Although clean eating may seem like hard work at first, you will quickly begin to feel the health benefits if you stick with it. You will experience increased energy levels, less headaches and mood swings, and because of the anti inflammatory properties of many vegetables, you may even notice that muscle aches and pains disappear. If your diet has gotten out of control, then it’s definitely worth a try!

 

Thank you Helen Trickle for the lovely write up. I hope our readers are getting some useful tips and information here.

Bazaar Ramadhan TTDI 2017

 

During the Ramadhan month and buffets aside, we know that visiting the Bazaar is the other way to celebrate buka puasa during this holy month. If there is anything I enjoyed more than the spoilt choices of buffets, the Ramadhan Bazaar if the next in mind to break fast. Ramadhan bazaars are filled with endless choices of food of various kinds and the spiritual boost with many valuable moments to be experienced and there is no place better to experience harmonious and joy of understanding the culture. Personally, it is the yearly mandatory activity I carry out with my family here in KL. This year, we berbuka puasa with choices from the renowned TTDI Ramadhan bazaar and I took the opportunity to gather some footages for a quick tour of what to expect at the bazaar.

 

 

Food is a good way in bringing people together disregard of race, ethnic, cultural and religion. It is amazing how we learnt so much about one another through food and even greater when you realized how food is actually one of the best way to study a culture and probably the origin and history of an ethnic.

 

This is the time of the month when the Holy Quran was revealed to the Prophet Mohammed and as a result, Muslims recite the holy text ardently. The fast is not simply about no food and water intake. It is also about self refrain from malicious behavior and the taxing challenge to demonstrate focused mindset. So as we savour the meals during buka puasa, keep in mind the spiritual significance of the fast.

 

Happy Ramadhan.

It is my first time pairing lamb and water spinach and it was a pleasant dish for anyone who is a fan of lamb. Every cutlet of meat is juicy and well seasoned and the quick dip of water spinach into the hot casserole pot was surprisingly addictive.

Freshly made with 4 pieces per serving plate, the huge chewy texture with sweet gula Melaka stuffing resembles the ondeh ondeh. I personally prefer ondeh ondeh to this one, but the sweet fresh grated coconut did make up to the lack of gula Melaka burst in this one.

Menopausal women can also find relief from the symptoms such as mood swings and hot flashes by frequently adding flaxseeds to their diet.

 

Mangos can also aid those who are diabetic as they have a low glycemic index which can normalize insulin levels and reducing the blood sugar levels from spiking which is common when drinking fruit smoothies. Other benefits of consuming mangos include reducing the risk of cancers such as: breast, leukemia, prostate and colon due to the high antioxidant enzymes they contain. In addition to this, the high content of vitamins A and C helps to prevent nutrition related breakouts and clear the skin which is particularly useful for those on a diet or weight loss program. Mangos can also maintain low cholesterol and keep a healthy heart due to their high fiber content.

“Hard Rock’s World Burger Tour continues to feed our guests’ desire for adventure, so this year we’ve revamped the menu to highlight unique and authentic ingredients from around the world,” said Darryl Mickler, Senior Director of Research and Development for Hard Rock International. “Guests can experience global flavours without leaving their hometown – from bold South Korea kimchi to sweet Colombia plantains, there’s something legendary for every palate.”

Throughout World Burger Tour, each french fry selection is paired with a complementary signature dipping sauce. Guests in select markets can choose from Hard Rock’s classic seasoned french fries or additional new offerings, including Garlic Fries with Garlic Aioli and Spiced Curry Fries with Tandoori mayonnaise**.

As part of the World Burger Tour menu, Hard Rock Cafes will also showcase the brand’s world-famous cocktails, including:

MISSION FOODS MALAYSIA PIZZA CRUSTS LAUNCH @THE COOKING HOUSE

 

The world’s leading flatbread- Mission Foods has just introduced ambient pizza crust in Malaysia and even tough missing their recent launch at The Cooking House Bangsar, I feel the need to share the highlights because these ready-made crusts seriously made things so much easier for pizza aficionados. All that you need to sort out is how to make the best pizza from now on. I’ve been posting quite some that I’ve made on my social medias and if you think pizza is all about the calories than that’s when you have to follow my ig account at @sycookies .

 

 

But back to the Mission Foods Pizza Crusts, they are not only conveniently made to fit onto regular oven trays to ensure perfectly cooked pizza; but the 10 inch is great for either solo or sharing. Available in 2 flavours, plain and wholemeal, it’s versatility for both asian and western inspired recipes is so much fun when it comes to wholesome meal.

Mission Foods partnered with Italian Chef considered a maestro in his field, Chef Federico Michielleto, of Marble 8 and Marini’s on 57 fame. Chef Federico held an exclusive Masterclass and imparted tips and tricks from his 25 years of experience on how to create the best pizzas based on his most sought after recipes. At the Masterclass, Chef Federico adeptly demonstrated Tandoori Chicken Pizza with Sour Cream and Onion, Tom Yam Prawn Pizza with Pineapple and Apple Strudel Pizza with Pecans and Cream Custard. Although the toppings were delicious, the pizza crusts held their own, lending a crispy texture, and a delicate yet extremely flavourful dough, pulling all the ingredients together.
