Grated fruit for rujak [2014: E O]

It might look pretty disgusting for some people but this is one of my favourite Indonesian street food, rojak/rujak serut. Rujak serut is traditional fruit salad with slices of assorted tropical fruit such as pineapple, mango, papaya, kedondong and sweet potato with spicy palm sugar dressing.

All the fruits are shredded into a roughly grated consistency then mixed with the sweet and speech dressing, which is made from palm sugar, tamarind, ground sautéed peanut, salt and shrimp paste. 

I would say almost everyday I buy rujak for my dessert after lunch. For me, rujak is one of the most healthiest Indonesian traditional snack. It looks disgusting but if you like eating fruit salad, you must try rujak serut. It tastes wonderful!
