Durian Black Glutinous Rice Porridge / Bubur Pulut Hitam Durian

Of all the durian seasons yearly,only this time this year I'm craving for durian black glutinous rice porridge. Don't know why for the past few years I never thought of this dessert.I totally completely forgot about this dessert that my mom used to cook for us many many years ago...Yup...I haven't eat this dessert for about ten over years...even my girls didn't know got this kind of dessert hahaha.....lols

So, with some durians in my fridge, yesterday morning went to wet market, bought this black glutinous rice. 
I didn't soak my glutinous rice, so it took me 2 hrs for it to turn soft and mushy. If you like you can soak it first for 2hrs or overnight..

Adjust the water, some people like it thick, and some like it thin/runny.
I suggest that do not skip the topping, it gives a very creamy taste.

200 gm black glutinous rice

4 litre water
150 gm sugar
200 ml thick coconut milk
8 pcs or more durian
1/2 tsp salt
few pcs of pandan leaves

100ml thick coconut milk
1/3 tsp salt
Combine both ingredients and cook until just boil.

Wash & soak glutinous rice for about 2hrs.
Put 4 litre water in a pot, add in glutinous rice and pandan leaves.
Bring to a boil and simmer for about 2 hrs, until the rice fluffy and soft.
Add in sugar and salt cook till sugar dissolved.
Add durian and coconut milk, cook until just boil.
Let it rest for 10 minutes.
Serve with coconut milk topping

Durian Doughnuts

A doughnut filled with durian filling.For those who loves durian , will surely love this.For doughnuts,I used the same  recipe I got from here.  I think I'll paste the recipe here :

300 gm bread flour(high protein flour)
200 gm plain flour
5 gm salt
60 gm sugar
20 gm milk powder
1/2 tbsp baking powder
31/2 tsps instant yeast

2 egg yolks

Mix (A) till well blended.
Add (B) and knead to form a dough.
Add (C), knead to form a smooth dough.
Cover the dough with wet cloth and leave it to prove for 45 minutes, or till it doubles in size.
Here is how I prove my dough.
Mould it into a ball then let it rest for 15 minutes.
Roll it out into a thin sheet about 10mm thick, then cut it with a round cutter.
Use scissor to clip the surface ,to make the thorns.
Place uncooked doughnuts onto a lightly flour baking tray and cover with a wet cloth,leave it to prove for 35 minutes.
Deep fry doughnuts in hot oil till golden brown.Dish up and let it cool.

Filling :
100 gm whip topping cream.
125 gm durian flesh

Whip the topping cream, put in the fridge.
Strain the durian flesh through a filter,so you can get a fine texture.
Combine whipped whipping cream and durian flesh.Set it in the fridge.

Take a doughnut, use knife prick a hole,fill in the filling.Serve.

Durian Cheese Cake with Chocolate Fudge

Everytime, when we pass through durian stall,my little girl reminds me of Durian Cheesecake with Chocolate Fudge.She requested me to make this Durian Cheesecake with Chocolate Fudge for quite sometimes, since she saw it here. This Durian Cheesecake with Chocolate fudge tastes a little bit sweet for me,and the base a bit hard and compact, maybe due to I press it too hard.A lesson to learn hah!But , overall taste, still ok,I'll cut down the sugar, if I  make this Durian Cheesecake with Chocolate fudge again.As for my little girl, she like it,even my eldest also like it very much.Here's the recipe that I adapted.

Ingredients For Crust:
225-250 gr Oreo biscuit, finely crushed(I removed the cream)
150 gr Unsalted butter, melted and cooled

Use a 9 inch round cake ring.
Slowly drizzle in the melted butter into the biscuit crumbs then stir till the mixture it's almost combined press into cake ring and chill in the fridge until firm. (or put in the freezer about 30 mins).

Ingredients For Durian Fillings:
50 ml hot water
1 Tbsp Gelatin powder
250 gr Cream cheese
70 gr Caster sugar (I'll use 20gm,if I make again)
250 gr Durian flesh
125 gr Plain yogurt
200 gr Non-dairy Whipping cream( whipped)

Dissolved the gelatin powder in 50ml hot water and set aside.
Beat the cream cheese until soft and fluffy then add sugar,beat until creamy and light, then add in the durian flesh and continue to beat until well combined.
Next pour in the melted gelatin mixture and yogurt then stir till combined.
Lastly pour in the whipped whipping cream and slowly stir till the mixture is creamy and well mixed (if you prefer smooth texture, I would suggest mix it with mixer).
Pour the mixture into the prepared biscuit base tin and chill for at least 3 hours or overnight then proceed to the chocolate fudge.

Ingredients For Chocolate Fudge:
150 gr Semi bitter dark chocolate
100 ml Whipping cream
30 gr Unsalted butter
Put all the ingredients in a pan/glass bowl over boiling water (or double boiler).
Whisk the ingredients until the fudge is smooth and glossy.
Let the warm fudge cool down to room temperature before pouring into the firm cheesecake top and tap the cake a few times to release any air bubbles.
Put it back into the fridge and let the chocolate fudge set for about an hour or so before cutting into slices and served.
