This is my version of fruit rojak salad which is loved by all my family members. There are several popular versions of rojak salad (Chinese, Malaysian, Indonesian) and each one of them tastes great. I love to include fruits in salad preparations to increase both the nutrition and fiber quotient. If you already have rojak sauce ready, you can make this salad in quick time though I'll highly recommend preparing this sauce fresh to get the best results. One can make subtle changes in the salad ingredients to use the available fruits in the kitchen. You can refrigerate it for about 15 minutes before serving. Rojak fruit salad can be served without main course and can be relished as it is during tea time.

Seasoned fried potato wedges are quite easy-to-make and go well with tea or coffee. Depending on the type of seasoning you're using, the result can vary. I always serve potato wedges or chips with a bowl of dip or sauce. The combination of sour cream and chili sauce goes well with almost any type of deep fried snack. For best results, use long tubers of fresh potatoes and cut even wedges with a slicer. Make sure you do not fry them for long on a high flame else they'll become too crisp and hard. Use groundnut or sunflower oil to elevate the flavor. You can also use canola oil for the same. So, let's get started and make these spicy and delicious deep fried potato wedges to liven up our evening tea time.
