is a spicy salad dish that are usually sold by Indian Muslims and occasionally by Chinese hawkers as well. The Indian version is often called Mamak Rojak
while the Chinese version is often called chnae3 hu2. The name chnae3 hu2 means "raw fish", although presently, the only raw "fish" in the dish is likely to be the jellyfish, which is also often poached.
Pasembur is a popular Penang hawker food usually taken as a side dish during lunch and dinner time. It comprises shredded cucumber, hong3kuak3 (Chinese turnip), potatoes, tau33knua1 (beancurd), bean sprout, along with hae3cni3 (prawn fritters), niau-choo chi
(flour-batter fritters, literally meaning "mouse fritters"), and sliced boiled egg. Some stalls also garnish it with poached jellyfish. The whole salad dish is then covered in a spicy sauce made from sweet potato.
