The pasembur, a Malaysian-Indian salad, is a crowd favourite dish that can be enjoyed at any time of day. Sometimes referred to as pasembur rojak and also cheh hu (Chinese pasembur), this modest street food usually consists of various ingredients such as prawn fritters, fried dough fritters or crackers, half-boiled egg, bean curd, potatoes and more. It is then topped with sweet potato sauce mixed with shredded cucumber and jicama (sengkuang) and, depending on some stalls, beansprouts as well.
Here is another pasembur stall where the customer would be spoilt for choice over the range of ingredients available. However, be prepared to stand in line at dinnertime. But as you wait, take your pick from the assortment of prawn fritters, fish balls, fish cakes, crab meat and sausages neatly arranged in front of the stall. They also top it off with a generous amount of sweet and spicy sauce filled with shredded cucumber.
