First of all, you should make sure that the Durian is undamaged when you buy it. Overripe Durians open by themselves and attract insects with their extreme smell. For consumption, it is opened at the seams and the seeds, wrapped in fruit pulp, are removed from their chambers.
The seeds and pulp are then separated from each other. In addition to raw consumption, the pulp can also be used for cakes, ice cream, jam, fruit juice or curry dishes. The seeds can also be eaten as a form of chips by cutting them thin and roasting them.
The fruit is quite difficult to digest and can be eaten together with mangosteen fruits to improve digestion. In addition, no alcohol should be consumed together with the Durian, otherwise it can lead to crampy abdominal pain.
