Stay-Home Cooking #5: Durian Spaghetti by Project Sazu

The Portrait of Durian Great: Today's unmistakably aromatic stay-home recipe comes to us courtesy of Project Sazu, a Shah Alam-based experimental home cook whose youthful cheer and easy laughter make for light-hearted viewing.

If you still have some durian in the freezer, try this fuss-free Durian Spaghetti recipe. You'll need:







Turmeric leaf


First, portion some shallots and garlic. Cut the shallot into small cubes, mince the garlic, chop up the turmeric. Also fold the turmeric leaf, and remove the seeds from the chillies for a less spicy dish.

Put everything you worked on - except the turmeric leaf, as well as some of the shallots and garlic - into the blender, add a little water, and blend it till you get a slightly watery consistency.

Time to work on the spaghetti. Put some water on a stove and sprinkle salt generously. Toss in the spaghetti once the water is boiling and make sure it goes under.

While the spaghetti is cooking, put some oil in a pan and turn the heat on. Make sure it's hot, then put in the remaining shallots and garlic. Stir until it becomes a little translucent, then add your blended paste and the turmeric leaf.

Finally, add the durian pulp - perhaps around three tablespoons - and stir, stir, stir! If it's too thick, add water and continue stirring. Once the sauce is at your preferred consistency and it's bubbling, put in the prawns. Continue stirring until the prawns are pink and cooked.

It's time to throw in the spaghetti. Keep stirring till the spaghetti soaks up the sauce. You're ready to serve!
