We met our friend Helen, who had kindly collected the durian flowers on my behalf, at a restaurant. She brought her three adorable kids and we had dinner together. The restaurant owner stir-fried some durian flowers for us. They were fragrant and oozing a sticky liquid but they were crunchy.
The kind owner offered the dish free to FB friends. Only one friend could make it and he brought along a bottle of toddy (fermented coconut sap) to share with us. I had a sip, it was my first time tasting it. It was sourish.... and said to be a detox drink... so I didn't dare to drink more. :)
We made several new friends at the restaurant. Every one loves to look for good food :)
The next day, I fried my durian flowers with spicy prawn floss and served it with the Penang 5-spice pork rolls for dinner, I made durian mousse with the frozen durian puree. We enjoyed the food gifts very much :D
