Durian Paste Filling for Mooncake

Came across the recipe from Amy Beh's newspaper article and not too sure how the paste looks like.  Anyway, since I have some durian flesh available [it is durian 'King of Fruits' season in Penang now], I went ahead to prepare it.

I reduced the sugar and oil.
Durian Paste
Ingredients
450 gm durian flesh - mashed
220 gm sugar [I reduced to 200 gm]
60 gm oil [I used 3 tbsp]
1 tbsp oil

Mixing durian flesh with sugar, stir on low heat [beginning]
Paste after stirring for 15 - 20 minutes and oil added
Paste ready after about 30 minutes
  • Put 1 tbsp oil in a non stick saucepan.  Add in durian flesh and sugar.  Stir and cook till dry [takes about 20 minutes.  Gradually add in oil, 1 tbsp at a time.  Stir continuously on low heat until paste is dry and looks shiny.
  • Dish out to cool completely before storing in refrigerator for later use.
