mango berry on skewers with spicy tamarind palm sugar dip




I had such a great time hosted  dinner party for foodbuzz 24x24 last weekend,and I'm glad my guests are enjoyed this appetizer,mango berry on skewers with spicy tamarind palm sugar dip ( Indonesian style dip) sweet,sour and spicy or we call it Rujak or Rojak ( Malaysian and Singaporean spelling )
Basically is fruits salad,you can use any fruits you like the only different is the dipping /sauce is represent of south east Asian country, the dish is very popular in Malaysia and Singapore
As for appetizer that evening I serve this mango berry on brochettes skewers with dip/sauce on the side.


Now is time to me to share diping sauce recipe,the only ingredients is hard to find here in the US is
Greater galangal but you can skip,or substitute with grate lime/lemon zest, I brought  greater galangal from my country last time.


After I strained,no chunks of tamarind, it looks smooth.



Spicy tamarind palm sugar dip(Indonesian dip style) for Rujak/Indonesian fruits salad.

Ingredients :
- 1 cup palm sugar
- 1 cup seedless tamarind soak with 1 cup water 
- 2 Thai chili/less or more 
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 tsp greater galangal powder/root
- 1/2 tbsp salt
(mix all ingredients into food processor just process until smooth ) you can strain to get smoother dip or serve as it is.
I normally didn't strain it,but this is the first time I serve this dip to my fellow Americans,so I strained to get smooth dipping sauce without chunks of tamarind.
