Chinese rojak is one of the many popular dishes that’s famous not jusst because of it’s sweet and sour flavours, combined with the crispiness of the you tiao and tau pok. The prawn paste, when mixed with the dish, makes it oh so yummy! While there are different versions of rojak, we’re putting our focus on the chinese version found in most hawker centres.
Our recipe consists of cutting up pineapple, mango, cucumbers, bean sprouts, apples, tau pok and you tiao, and toss them with the sauce, topped up by crunchy peanuts. We have to emphasize that the key to it’s flavour is in how you make your sauce, and we are very happy with ours!
