Pemetaan Budaya



Pasembor or Pasembur is also known as Malaysian Indian Salad. This dish is a mixture of cucumber slices, onion, potato, bean curd, bean sprout, dried shrimp, crab fried in spices and fried squid, served with sweet and spicy peanut gravy. The gravy is akin to the gravy of the gado-gado (mixed vegetable salad) dish or satay (grilled meat in a skewer). This dish is normally taken in the afternoon as a vegetarian diet if not mixed with seafood.

Traditionally, the Tamil Muslim pasembor seller turns his motorcycle as a kiosk for the preparation and selling of this dish. Nowadays, the seller moves about using a small lorry.
