Updated Oct 17th, 2021 I wrote this post exactly 3 years ago but never published it. Tried to cook this dish again and followed the recipe to the t. Still good 👍.

Chinese Rojak (Salad in Shrimp Paste Dressing)


Updated: June 26th, 2021 Updated pictures and added green mango to the ingredients. Tastes delicious as always as long as you have Chinese crullers as the anchor.
