GEORGE TOWN: KNOWN as our country's version of a salad, pasembur is an Indian dish freshly prepared by many hawkers here.
Patrons are able to choose from an array of ingredients that are displayed at the stalls.
A basic pasembur dish comes with cucumber and jicama (sengkuang) strips, potatoes, prawn fritters, bean curd, crispy crackers and a hard-boiled egg. A generous amount of sweet and spicy peanut sauce is then drizzled on the mixture of ingredients.
Customers are also free to choose other ingredients to add to the dish such as squid, crab meat and fish cake. The dish is often eaten for lunch or dinner.
For those who don't like too much of the peanut sauce, the gravy can be served separately.
Pasembur is often eaten with other street fare.
It is nicely paired with a cold, coconut milkshake.
