Step 4 – Cook durian gravy

  • In a saucepan, boil 2 cups coconut milk, 1 cup water, ½ tsp salt, palm sugar, 1 Tbsp sugar, knotted pandan leaves and durian flesh.
  • Once boiling, bring the heat down to low and let simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • At this point, the durian flesh should begin to melt into a gravy-like consistency. Remove seeds from pot.
    If durian flesh is not melting, use a fork to pull durian flesh away from its seeds
