Noi-Nar Ka Ti (Custard Apple in Coconut Cream)

A custard apple is ripe when you gently squeeze it and it gives slightly under your hand. Much the same as an avocado. You can buy custard apples ready to eat, or still hard to the touch and let it ripen over the next few days after purchase.

If you want to hasten the ripening process then simply put the fruit into a brown paper bag with a banana and leave it on the kitchen bench. The banana will accelerate the ripening of the custard apple.

Custard Apples are only eaten when soft, and only the flesh is eaten. To eat, simply cut in half and scoop out the white flesh. The Custard Apple should be moist with a pleasant sweet aroma. Once ripe, custard apples can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days. Once the skin has gone purple or black, they have passed their best eating quality.

  • 2 Custard  apples
  • 1 cup of coconut milk
  • 1 ½  cups of white sugar
  • 1 cup of Pandan  leaves  juice
  • A pin of salt

How to cook:
  1. Wash and clean well custard apples and cut for half.  
  2. Peeled, seeds removed and set aside. 
  3. Boil Pandan leaves with sugar. Keep boiling until sugar is melted 
  4. Add coconut milk into the pot and put custard apples  into the pot too.  Continue boiling for 3-5 minutes, turn off the stove,  leave  it cool.
  5. You can served warm or with ice.

Enjoy!! ^^
