Green Bean & Durian Porridge (Sweet dessert)

Bought 2 boxes of durian recently to make some mooncake and a durian cake. Still have quite a bit of leftovers and decided to make this. It has been a long time since I had this. I also like to eat this dessert with cream crackers, just crush them and sprinkle them on the porridge - gives a little crunch to the dessert.


200g green beans, soaked for 4 hours (I used boiling water and soaked for 2 hrs)
500ml coconut milk (I used Ayam brand which is about 270ml and added water to make it 500ml)
80g gula melaka (dark palm sugar) or dark brown sugar (you can reduce if you don’t like too sweet)
40g white sugar (can reduce if you don’t like too sweet)
1 tsp salt
3 pandan leaves, knotted
100ml fresh milk (original use coconut cream)
4-5 seeds durian
some water if you like it dilute

1. Boil soaked beans till soft, if too much water, pour them away, leave about the level of the boiled beans
2. Add coconut milk, both sugars, salt, pandan leaves and durian into the pot and let it simmer over medium heat till bubbly.
3. Once slightly boiled, add milk/coconut cream and simmer till slightly thickens (I don't like it too thick)
4. Serve hot with crushed cream crackers or bread for dipping
