It’s the durian season yo, my family has been eating it non-stop since like a month ago. When I was young I didn’t like it, in fact I feel that the people who liked this fruit must be a freak or someting lol. But dunno what struck me suddenly, I fell in love in this heavenly fruit. I remembered I craved for durian so badly that Shang Jun and I went to buy in Dengkil on a motorbike. We bought 2 sacks of durians and I had to carry it on my thigh with both hands, really crazy. When we reached home, Wen Fong and Kheng Kait would quickly hide into their rooms, lol. Ahh.. those MMU days..
So yesterday my parents went on a durian shopping spree in BM and Perai. They bought this special variation of the fruit called “Udang Merah” that cost RM50, for 2!!
The flesh was orangish, very tender and juicy. In total 2 druians had 24-25 fruits in them, so 1 fruit alone cost RM2!! That’s already the price for a durian kampung!
They filled up this 1.5L ice-cream container nicely
We also bought 6 durian kampung for RM15. I personally prefer this variation the most, it’s the cheapest around too.
[…] I am starting a new category on my blog “Mom’s Cooking” All entries under this category will feature dishes prepared by my beloved mother. I will update once a week in the weekends because that’s when my mother cook something special and nice The first dish I want to share with you is Sweet Sour Crab. There is a wet market in Perai that sells some special seafood that cannot be found in normal markets. That would explain why my parents would call it a “richman’s market” It is also the place where we bought our “Udang Merah” durian last weekend. You can find really big crabs sold there, price ranging from RM22-25 per kg. The way the crabs are killed is quite brutal: First they were put upside down and struck hard on their bellies by knives, while still being tied up. Then they were tore up to pieces.. ouch! We bought 7 crabs for RM55 to cook for 5 people. The crabs will still need extra cleaning using an used toothbrush, especially the limbs. Ingredients used to prepare this dish include: Chilli paste, Limes, Sugar and Corn flour. […]
