2.5 cup refine/granulated sugar( if you want your sauce thicker add more sugar)
1 tbsp sticky shrimp paste (har ko) must have!!
1.5-2 tbsp of caramel black thick sauce (I use Yuen Chun brand) don't use the regular thick soy sauce,it's smell raw!!(I used ABC Kecap Manis because that's what I had)
1/2 tsp of salt
1/2 tbsp roasted crushed belacan (shrimp paste)
1. Prepared a clean medium bowl,combine chili boh/sambal olek ,sugar,salt,roasted belacan,sticky shrimp paste (har koh) and caramel thick soy sauce.Mix all the ingredients in the bowl ,use a spatula or big spoon to stir the mixture until well combine.Keep stirring (about 30 times)until the sauce become thick and gooey ,then add in chopped bird's chili.Check the seasoning (salt and sugar) before store in clean container.(No water needed!!!)
2. Use a clean spoon each time you want to scoop the sauce out.Store the remaining sauce in fridge.Shelf life is about 6 months to a year..
3. Prepare your favourite cut fruits in a plate,add rojak sauce one spoon at a time into your salad.Then sprinkle with roasted crushed peanut on top before serving.
Note: Pineapple and cucumber are fruit which contains higher liquid than others fruits or vegetables.So it's advisable to consume the salad (rojak) immediately after mixing with the sauce. Add peanuts when you're ready to eat to prevent the peanuts from getting soggy.
I bought some green apples, mango and cucumber for my rojak. I didn't sprinkle peanuts on my rojak because I was too lazy to grind some up and I'm not a big fan of peanuts on my rojak. I could have added some kangkung and beansprout in my rojak too but then I just wanted mine to be fruit rojak.
I love the rojak sauce!It was so very yummy along with the fruits that I had. I was in heaven when I ate my rojak. My only problem is I can taste the coarse sugar in my rojak sauce. Lesley if you are reading this is it suppose to be like this or should I just add more water to melt the sugar? I know when you buy rojak from the stall back home in Malaysia their sauce is always watery compared to this one. Anyway it was an easy and yummy rojak sauce. I halved the recipe and still have half a bottle of rojak sauce left but Uncle Richie bought me another pineapple so I can have more since there is still fresh fruits around but would not be for long as the weather is getting cooler day by day.
