2.  Ingredients: Fruit rojak typically consists of pineapple, mengkuang, cucumber, bean sprouts, taupok (puffy, deep-fried tofu) and sometimes, youtiao (cut-up Chinese-style fritters) and raw mangoes. The dressing is made up of shrimp paste (belacan), sugar, chili, and tamarind. Ingredients, however, vary among vendors. The ingredients are cut into bite-sized portions, mixed thoroughly in a bowl with the dressing, and topped with chopped peanuts before serving.
