- Fruits - You can easily replace the fruits with other asian fruits. Just as long as you also change the sauce!
- Mango Puree and Juices - You can achieve the puree by blending up some mango, but if you can get your hand on juices you can easily replace if other.
- Pairings - You can go other ways like lychee, rambutans, papaya or even durian!
- Gula Melaka - If you can't find the real stuff, you can always use plain ol' castor sugar or some palm sugar. If you're doing castor sugar, why not tweak it by infusing lemongrass or ginger into the mix?
