tempoyak -

Tempoyak  is a dish derived from a fermented durian fruit. Tempoyak is a food that is usually consumed as a side dish when eating rice. Tummy can also be eaten directly, but this is rarely done because many can not stand the acidity and aroma of the tempoyak itself. In addition, tempoyak used as cooking spice.

The taste of Tempoyak is acidic, due to the fermentation process in the durian fruit flesh that becomes the raw material. Tempoyak is known in Indonesia, especially in Bengkulu, Palembang, Lampung, Jambi, and Kalimantan. 

In addition, this food is also famous in Malaysia. In Palembang, tempoyak is cooked with a mixture of chicken meat. In Lampung, tempoyak becomes an ingredient in a dish of seruit or mix for sambal.
