' Durian Sushi '

It is durian season again !!!  how could I not savor some this less but it is a must eat item in my menu :p  Bought some back and other than eating it in its original state, I make ' durian sushi ' using glutinous rice which is my favorite , instead of the sushi rice.  It is great to eat durian with glutinous rice.  Making them into sushi roll tasted even better, with the toasted nori  wrapping... I made this for dessert and I make sure we had a light dinner :p so that we can tuck in these heavenly durian filled sushi  LOL!  yea.... we are durian lovers :)   Most Malaysians love this thorny fruit.....I do !

Opening this thorny fruit can be quite difficult but WB is an expert when it comes to opening this thorny fruit, of course for the fact that he started eating this fruit since age four.  I trained my Piggies to eat durian at a young age and they love it.  And today , they are durian lovers.  Today I am going to make them drool over their keyboard with this durian sushi....the wicked momsie at work again LOL!   (  Jo told me she bought some last week from the supermart  )  so I guess she won't drool that much but maybe she may want to make some for her friends to try out.  She and myself love japanese sushi and now this durian sushi will be my first malaysian sushi ever...just kidding !

My colleague gave me a packet of glutinous rice from Thailand. They went over there for work and bought back some glutinous rice. Thailand is famous for their glutinous rice.  I really don't know what to do with them , thus since I have durians at home, I thought it was a great idea to use the rice and durian pulp for making sushi. And they turned out great.....WB and myself had a  wonderful dessert yesterday........only I will think of such dessert for WB ! LOL!

Durian Sushi


Cooked sushi rice
Durian pulp
Nori Sheet


Place a nori sheet on the sushi mat.  Level the glutinous rice evenly on the nori sheet...method is the same as making the classic sushi , after which place the durian pulp all over the rice and roll it tightly into a roll.  Cut into sushi sizes and serve chilled .

Have a wonderful day..... and for durian lovers, you can try
making sushi with them.....I am sure your family will love it :)

  8. Yummy what a great idea, this looks great! :)

  9. I haven't had durian since we were last in Thailand. The quality of this fruit in the U.S. is very poor and probably contributes to the bad reputation it has here. I loved the durian we had in Asia and your recipe sounds wonderful. You are very creative. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary
