  • Hey orange can you do you bit box this. ☺☺☺������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������✋

  • certainly no one can describe how durian smells and taste like as soon as you try it.
    some will say it’s horrible some will love it. it all comes with personal preferences.:D

    (no one likes it in my family except me, so they hate me when i buy a fresh one back home):D

  • Any suggestions on how to keep this fresh for the next day? I want to make it for thanksgiving but I’d have to make it the day before

  • You inspire me so much! holy shit WOW you’re revolutionizing vegan food ������ Totally saving this video to try it later. Do you need to use fresh
    Jack fruit or can you use the prestressed at the grocery store?

  • Hi…very interesting video. I’ve never seen a Jackfruit �� it looks strange �� Thanks for sharing. See you soon, Dolores…..The Baking Diva ❤️

  • I had actually seen Roberto Martin use the rice paper as chicken skin in his video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gVMBOT6ch_Q. Now, what you did is off the charts amazing. I’m definitely trying this, thanks!

  • Is the liquid smoke necessary? I remember I was making something with liquid smoke and I couldn’t handle the smell at all for some reason. Had to stop making it.

  • my dad LOVES this and yes, I am Malaysian though I don’t like it for some reason. And I’m guessing she tasted private parts that tastes like durian?.. I tell you the smell is so strong it could literally stick to your food. Once my dad bought some durian and put in the fridge, with our cupcakes in it and after we took it out the whole batch tastes durian-ish. Oh and the cupcakes were in a box.

  • I actually don’t think it smells bad at all; it just smells tropical to me. I don’t understand how it can be described as smelling like a dead dog. How can a fruit smell like rotting flesh?:S
    And why did they only show the opinions of the people who disliked the fruit? Seems kind of biased.

  • I can’t get past the smell.  I cannot eat something that I cannot stand smelling.  I tried, and I tried, but I can’t stand durian.  If someone can tell me how to get rid of the smell, I would like it. 

  • Smell unpleasant and kind of messy to eat with the bare hands. The taste of the fruit differs from people to people, some may find it sweet tasting while others may be turn off by its taste.

  • That is not durian….Its called ISU.Its has longer spike and taste more nutty while durian has shorter spikes which taste more cheesy

  • I loved durian first try that’s why me and my husband decided to chase durian for an entire year in Southeast Asia. I think we ate well over 1,000 durians. It was awesome. We did eat in the hotel rooms a few times as well, but since we were in budget locales I don’t think they cared much.

  • It’s kind of genetics usually when you smell the durian fruit, it smells like sweet honey to me, whereas to some people it smells like trash or really old socks. Good thing it smells like honey to me:3 durian is my favorite fruit<3

  • I gasped when she said “cauliflower is expensive”. Is it?! I live in the UK and it’s super super cheap. I never considered it would be expensive elsewhere! Duh.

  • we wil we wil mock you buddy yore a ccoconut you got a hairy butt

    annananananannnannnannnnanananananannannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnaa orange haw many times can you anoy pear

  • put it in the freezer and freeze it for a bit, and when you eat it, its going to taste amazing and the texture becomes almost like ice cream, it wont disappoint you

  • everyone else in my family loves it xD i personally cant stand the smell. the taste is not terrible, its tolerable, i just saw someone saying hed rather eat a cockroach than a durian lol u srs bro

  • the worst part is when you burp after eating durian..so. i prefer unripe durian it doesn’t smell like the ripe one..crunchy and delicious..

  • Haha. Maybe that is the special part of Malaysian. It’s rare to get this durian though. You should have try and experience it. Who knows if the taste is good?

  • The durians u get here in aus don’t smell bad at all!! It smells sweet and it tastes so deliciously creamy. The only bad thing is the texture which can feel a bit gross in ur mouth but I think it’s good!

  • Fortunately, I born in the country that finds durian and many other weird exotic fruits/foods very enjoyable. Americans and Europeans, you guys miss out A LOTS of foods that human kind eat:)P

  • I wouldn’t call it putrid. It just smells funky you can kinda get used to it too! It’s not really the main thing that you would see at first times, it’s the ” what kind of fruit is this ” look.

  • most malaysian who love durians like the smell of it

    honestly,i got to say i really love the smell,one you get obseessed to it, you will start having no problems with the smell at all

  • For the water (for the rice paper), I’m going to try some scented water that I made for a ferment. It’s infused with pepper corns, pickling spices, bay leaves and garlic cloves. Boiled then simmered, then drained, discarding the garlic, bay leaves, etc. I keep some in the fridge for recipes like this. It would have to be warmed first, of course.

    I do hope that the chefs who inspired you weren’t offended by the statements like “can’t we do better?” etc., but probably/hopefully not.

    Still, excellent job and thanks for sharing.

  • If you’re factory senses died THAN it would taste good, but no matter what! If it don’t smell good it won’t taste good. Lets just cut to the chase, IT SMELLS LIKE ROTTEN POONTANG WITH A TOUCH OF DEATH!!!

  • This fruit doesnt smell bad to me at all idk wut this video is saying:C, ik some ppl arent use to it but is it that bad to them? lol

  • If you eat a spoon ful 3 times the taste enhances into somewhat banana or vanilla custard flavor but the Undomesticated varieties are Garlic flavored…Just dont think about the smell

  • Y’all think these could be made with oyster mushrooms? I’m aware the flavor and color would be a lot different but I just can’t find jackfruit anywhere.

  • the main point I got from this video is that this is a great recipe for a vegetarian “chicken wing” and it is such a great recipe for said item because it emulates the real thing so much. Y’all were elated when you bit into it and all the positives were that the texture of the jackfruit was like chicken and the rice paper “tasted just like chicken skin”. Why don’t you just eat a chicken wing if your body wants it so bad? Just curious!

  • cigarettes smoke smell worst than the durian.. i rather entering the hotel room with the smell of durian than entering the room but welcomed by a cigarette smoke smell

  • Great job on this! I tried Sauce Stache and although it worked it’s just labor-intensive if I’m trying to make a big amount for a party

  • Americans…. just discovering Jack fruit is equivalent to a chicken..Indians have been eating this for years.. and then these white people will claim they discovered the vegan equivalent of chicken… ����

  • Serious question, fellows…How long can you keep a durian in the fridge before it spoils? I bought two frozen durians and put them immediately in the fridge to thaw. Exactly 10 days later I ate one…and it was absolutely delicious!!! Five days later, I ate the second durian, and it too was declicious!!! So how long does a durian keep refrigerated before it goes bad? Better question, I suppose, is would you even know it was spoiled? LOLOL!

  • Try cutting up sugar cane for the bone! When you go to dim sum, they use sugar cane as the stick to hold shrimp balls together lol

  • I tried something like this from a Jamaican vendor from the UK. He used all of the above except their bone was sugar cane sticks. He was grilling these drumsticks with Jamaican seasonings. It was so good.

  • Oh my gosh!!! I’ve been telling my husband about this recipe ever since your video released! I have been looking for a good Thanksgiving roast to buy or to make at home, and I had an evil idea… do you think a Turkey seitan loaf could be wrapped in this awesome rice paper skin? Roasted in the oven???

  • I saw sauce stache’s video but I have to be honest. The soy milk skin didnt look as crispy and it was kinda confirmed when he bit into it, it was just soft. Your guys’ first bites were definitely nice and crunchy. Ill try this out.

  • this is just like the lyrics of he will rock you btw orange hey wind i want to blow you away get it HAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

  • Yea it smells �� i ran into one for the first time ever, the price was $40 i was debating wether if I should buy it or not but i smelled it and it stank a lil so I decided not to buy it bc I’d figured maybe I wouldn’t like it.

  • Ok so I made this (deep fried version), and though it was delicious, I think it should be noted that the entirety of the starch/tofu binder may not be needed. I followed the recipe to a T, just halved everything so it wouldn’t make as big of a batch.
    By the time I incorporated all of the starch binder into the jackfruit, the mixture was a little too gummy and soft. If you’ve ever worked with tapioca starch you’ll know the texture. I hoped that it was normal and frying it would firm it up, but nope. It was like fried soggy chicken. I’m going to make another batch soon and adjust the amount of the binder. And I also think it needs something else to firm up the jackfruit mixture just a tad more. Perhaps adding a bit of gluten to the tofu and starch..? I’m not sure.

  • I’m vegan but I hate when vegans say “oh it tastes just like chicken!.. I haven’t had chicken in 9 years. BUT this is what chicken tastes like!” lol No… it’s probably not.

  • Way to aggrandize the issue, ‘The Durian wars’ honestly, its hella cheap and while most hotels and elevators may have signs barring people from carrying the fruit inside, people (other than the 1 case it seems) NEVER go around killing each other over it. Typical documentary filmmaking exaggeration…

  • Kuching is the capital of Borneo? That’s about the funniest thing I’ve heard. Anywaaaay…. as someone who didn’t grow up eating cheese, I can confirm it that the first time I tasted cheese (I was probably 10) I almost threw up, I remember it clearly too. I thought it tasted really bad. It took some time for me to grow accustomed to it. But now cheese cake is one of my most favorite food.

  • not to take a giant poop all over the hole thing u made but the hole point of eating chicken or other animal meat besides pleasure is for the protein and other stuff it offers to nourish you….your jackfruit fried thing while tasty from your perspective is hollow as a food that its trying to represent

  • Your reaction was priceless and hilarious. Go on girl, w your talented cooking skills and that badass rice paper fried jackfruit. You did it!! Amazing.

  • If the core is like taro I recommend steaming then baking it. Taro fries can break your teeth if you just bake them. They get hard as coconut shells.

  • Oh my I cannot live without my durian. Yeah to some the smell and taste can be off putting but thank goodness I’m not part of these ppl if not, too bad, I’ll be missing out a lot!

  • Ok. I just tried this an hour ago and it came out great but I added an extra step to keep the jackfruit from being soggy. After infusing with the broth, I broiled it in the oven on a baking sheet to dry it out. It was great and not soggy inside.

  • There’s a great recipe out there on Pinterest where she adds jackfruit with viral wheat gluten and makes drumsticks with cinnamon sticks

  • Wow if that chews like chicken halfas much as it looks like chicken I’ve gotta make this! Only five years since I’ve had chicken but I still remember the texture. Thanks for the content!

  • Veganism is a mental illness and should be treated as such… Vegans should be locked up in some kind of institution and force-fed with raw meat until their brains kickstart again.

  • I was so excited to try this, I don’t know what I did wrong but it was so gross. Soggy, the rice paper burnt but still wasn’t crispy.

  • Thanks. It is so expensive. I appreciate the video. Mango tastes like a combination of a carrot and a peach to me. I like a nice ripe pineapple doused with cinnamon.
