Rujak Potong - cut fruit (2)

Still remember my post of the original Rujak - Indonesian fruit salad? This is another version of rujak. If the original rujak has many fruit assortments with mixed peanut brown sugar sauce for dressing, then this rujak has limited fruits assortment and instead eating it with sauce, there's salt mixed with chopped hot red chili to substitute the sauce.


The limited assortment of the fruits are Mango (mangga), Water Apple (jambu air), Ambarella (kedondong) and Jicama (bangkuang).


But then, as you can see in the behind glass box, the vendor also sells Water Apple, Mango and Pineapple seperately in plastic bags.

Salt mixed with chopped red hot chili for the dipping.

  1. the cut fruit looks nice and it seems different compare to our place here. We used to have the Rojak with shrimp paste instead the powder.

  2. the salt powder with chilies is similar to our salt with belacan powder, normally will be added when we buy cut fruits in the hawker....but when we talk about rojak here..we normally will add shrimp paste.

  3. Our powdered dipping here also includes dried sour plums.

  6. steven goh: The original rujak with sauce also has shrimp paste in it :)

    simplegirl: belacan powder? that's new to me. I wonder how it tasted :)

    worldwindows: Wow! Dried sour plums? Nice taste!

    5 star foodie: It's easy to make by your own, just salt then mix it with the cut red hot chili. If you eat sour fruit (not ripe yet) with salt, it give a sweet taste, try it :)
