Rojak – 水果囉喏

People usually use “Rojak” to describe things that are randomly mixed and matched together, which is what it actually is in this dish. But the ingredients are definitely not random, the mix of all the ingredients in this dish especially the shrimp paste just gives such a unique flavour that just tastes so good.

We like the Singapore hawker style of rojak, which has ingredients like sliced pineapple, cucumber, jicama, green apples and mangoes, tau pok and of course EXTRA you tiao!!!

Tossed in sauce and topped with more ground peanuts, who would be able to resist eating this any day. The beauty of making this dish at home is that you can choose make it to your own liking. If you like more fruits you can add more fruits or if you are like us and love rojak with extra you tiao, extra peanuts then go ahead and toss in more you tiao when you guys make it.
