How to Cook Durian Crepes

Serves: 4

Preparation time: 10 mins

Cooking time: 5 mins

Ingredients needed to make Durian Crepes:

For the crepe:

  • 50 gm all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp fine granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp potato starch
  • 40 ml evaporated milk
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tsp melted butter
  • Few drops of green food colouring
  • 160 ml water

For the filling:

  • 150 ml fresh cream, whipped
  • Durian flesh, deseeded

Cooking instructions for Durian Crepes:

  • To make the crepes, place the flour in a small bowl and stir in sugar as well as potato starch until well combined.
  • Drizzle the beaten egg as well as evaporated milk into it and whisk them all together until they blend thoroughly.
  • Stir in a splash of water, followed by melted butter and vanilla extract until just incorporated.
  • Stir in few dashes of the green colouring until the batter is evenly coloured and tip the batter into a fine mesh sieve to strain it into a bowl and get rid of any lumps.
  • Heat a non-stick skillet over moderately low heat and ladle small portion of the batter onto it.
  • Spread it with the back of the ladle into a thin circle and cook for a minute or until its base is set and browns slightly.
  • Check the doneness of the crepe by lifting up the sides of the crepe from time to time, using a wooden spatula.
  • Slide the crepe onto a baking sheet and flip it over so that the browned side faces up.
  • Make rest of the crepes in a similar fashion, using rest of the batter, and keep them in separate sheets or plates in the same manner as the first one.
  • To assemble, spread a tsp of the whipped cream onto the middle of each crepe and top it up with a layer of 1 tsp durian flesh.
  • Spread a tsp of whipped cream on top again and wrap one side of the crepe over the filling to cover it halfways.
  • Wrap the other side in a similar fashion and fold in the other edges; set aside.
  • Fill and wrap rest of the crepes in a similar fashion and leave them in the fridge to chill.
  • Serve chilled.
