Title: Rambutan Salad
Post by: dongeorgio on January 16, 2014, 08:02:38 PM
Tropical Rambutan Salad


8 rambutans, skinned and carefully pitted
tablespoon crushed peanuts
1 small red chili seeded and minced
8 very small pieces of lime, optional to keep the skins on
tablespoon of minced fresh ginger
1 tablespoon soft brown sugar
a little water

1. Heat sugar with a little water in a saucepan over medium heat - stir consistently.
2. Once sugar has melted, the water reduced, and the mixture becomes sticky - remove from heat. Scrap the melted sugar into a bowl to set and then crush slightly to achieved a hard and crumbly texture.
3. Once the rambutans have been deskinned and pitted - take a little of each ingredient and assemble inside one part of the halved rambutan - spread some melted brown sugar on the mixture and cover with the other half of the rambutan fruit. Serve chilled.
4. The sensation you would get at a bite of this dish would be an explosion of crunchy, sweet, sour and spicy senses. (
