Rojak Buah

This dish is commonly found in Malaysia and her neighbouring countries with some slight variations to the sauce. But essentially this a dish of mixed fresh fruits and a delicious sauce of sweet black fermented shrimp paste with a hint of spiciness. Reduce the amount of sugar and it’s tasty and pretty healthy too.
