Is melindjo vegan?

Melindjo, also known as emping or belinjo, is a unique ingredient commonly found in Southeast Asian cuisine. It is made from the seeds of the belinjo fruit, which are boiled, mashed, and then formed into flat, round crackers that are either fried or roasted. Melindjo has a slightly bitter and nutty flavor, with a crisp texture that makes it a popular snack in Indonesia and Malaysia. It is often used as a crunchy topping for salads or as a garnish for soups and stews. Melindjo is also believed to have several health benefits, such as improving digestion and reducing inflammation.
