Yesterday I just had a nice bowl of vegetarian Rojak, the sauce is a little strong, but it's really good otherwise. Rojak is a dish that's commonly found here in Singapore, and also in neighbouring countries such as Malaysia and Indonesia. It consists of fruits and veggies mixed in special sauce which tastes both sweet and hot. The rojak I ate contains cucumber, pineapple, tofu, and some other food which I can't recognized since the taste of the sauce is so strong. The non-vegetarian version uses shrimp and prawn paste in the sauce. You can also use vegetarian shrimp paste to use in the sauce, I will post the ingredients for the shrimp paste tomorrow. How good the rojak will taste depends on the ingredients of the sauce, and I think the kind of fruits and veggies used would also be importance. For a healthier rojak version, leave the oil out.
