If not using tinned or frozen durian puree, cut into husk of a durian fruit and remove one segment of the pulpy inner flesh. Place in a bowl and use a fork to mash the flesh, reserving 4 tablespoons to add to the cheesecake mixture.
Beat the cream cheese until fluffy. Add the condensed milk and continue beating until smooth. Beat in 4 tablespoons durian, eggs, soured cream, vanilla extract and durian or banana extract. Spoon the mixture over the prepared digestive biscuit base.
Bake 1 hour or until filling is set and edges are lightly browned. Serve warm or chill overnight in the refrigerator.
Durian, a large fruit from Southeast Asia, has a dark green to brown husk studded with prickly thorns concealing pale yellow to red flesh. Some find durian's strong odor offensive, but the reward is its creamy flesh with a nutty, slightly sweet taste.
