Local Foodie Introduction : Indian Rojak


A myriad of goodness - The Indian Rojak

One local delight that anyone venturous tourist in Singapore must try is the local variant of the Indian Rojak. This is different from the Chinese Rojak which is mostly crispy goodies like taupok (fried tofu puffs), youtiao (fried dough sticks), vegetables and fruits and the slick black prawn paste (Click Here For A Recommended Chinese Rojak Stall)

However, the Indian Rojak is in a different category on its own. With a wide variety of ingredients for anyone to choose from, you get to pick your favourite and once its all chopped up, it comes served with an extremely savoury red peanut sauce. The sauce is much like the one that comes with Satay (skewed meat on sticks).

The dish above had fried potatoes, onions, green chillies, red squid, cucumber, fried tofu. When I was slightly younger I remember eating those with century egg, ginger, fishballs, etc. etc. Basically, as the name Rojak suggests, it is a dish made from almost anything that goes well with the peanut sauce.

Any recommendations of where to go for the best rojak? Do leave comments!
