    Default Indonesian Fruit Spice -- Help Please

    I have been using a Spice Mix for Fruit (I think it is Indonesian)
    which I enjoy very much.

    The shake bottle is labeled Bumbu Asinan Buah and the rest of the
    label has no English.


    On the back there is a label that is headed by 'Cara membust Asinan'.
    It might be an inscription or a recipe.


    I would like to purchase the SAME product -- so if anyone has an idea
    what it is and where I can get it -- Please Post AND write me at
    'zydecogary at gmail.com'.


    ========


    Now, it may be similar to something called Chaat Masala (Indian) --
    which is used on fruit. If someone would like to address this and
    provide more information, I, and I am sure others, would appreciate
    it.


    ANYWAY -- it's great. I use it on apples, oranges, peaches, pears,
    mangos, plums, etc. I even mix a little with yogurt.


    It really brings out a different taste to the fruit.


    I hope someone could identify it for me and tell me where I can
    purchase it in the United States. I DO know that there are similar
    products, I have tried some, but this particular product has the
    taste
    I am seeking. Sorry, I don't know where I purchased it in the first
    place as I travel a lot, visit ethnic stores, and often buy products
    that just look interesting with which to experiment.


    Here is a photo of the product:

    Have you tried looking up the manufacturer? They seem to have gone out
    of business (Gunung Mas Permai).

    Anyhow, recipes for the spice mixture for Asinan Buah appear to be a
    basic sambal: Chilies, roasted dried shrimp, possibly tamarind, salt,
    and sugar (try palm sugar). If you like those flavors, making your own
    should be simple.

    In addition to the previous message in this thread. I take it you are
    reading the thread messages -- so you must have missed it.

    I thought I had some, but it turned out to be Vietnamese. (That
    contains salt, sugar, chilli [sic], and citric acid.)
