Durian Fried Rice

I have heard about this Durian Fried Rice from one of the Hong Kong style cafe called "Central" where they have a few branches in Singapore, one of it located at the basement of Takashimaya. I guess not many of us will dare to take the risk on trying this dish on the combination of seafood fried rice with Durian. But to me, this is always an interesting dish to try on since from young I always love the combination of white rice serve with durian flesh.

As now is the Durian peak seasoning, I decided to grab a few from the fruit stall to test out some interesting recipe which I have keep in view for a long time. So based on the food review from some of the blogger who have tried this dish, I came out with my own version of Durian Fried Rice. Since I always fancy the idea of mixing rice with durian, I found this combination of fried rice is very special and the taste do blend in well with the fried, rice and egg. I didn't add any seasoning to this dish, and not even to the prawn as well. Posted by Picasa

1 Small Rice Bowl Of Cooked Rice
3 Seeds Of Durian Flesh, 80g
5 Medium Prawns, devein
1 Egg, optional
1 Teaspoon Wolfberries
2 Cloves Garlic, finely chopped
1/2 Tablespoon Olive Oil
Chopped Spring Onion

1. Pre-heat a frying pan with oil and saute the chopped garlic until fragrant then stir in the prawn and fry until cooked through.
2. Next stir in the cooked rice and give it a quick stir to separate each of the grain from sticking together.
3. Push the rice mixture to aside(refer to the picture above) then crack an egg into the pan and stir-it through to the rice mixture until combine then add in the wolfberries.
4. Lastly, push the rice mixture aside again and add in the Durian flesh and give it a quick stir to loosen the paste then stir it into the rice mixture till well combined.
5. Remove the pan from heat, and sprinkle chopped spring onion into rice mixture, dish up and serve warm with extra seeds of durian.

a) If you want it to be a bit savoury, you can add 1/4 teaspoon of salt or seasoning to stir-fry the fried before adding the durian.
