Would this refer to something like chocolate icing and peanut butter, or are these some different sorts of spread? Does selai really refer to any spread, or is it limited to sweet spreads made from fruit, as the English word jam is?
'selai' is more like jam, marmelade, (sandwich spread).
I think it has a Dutch origin 'gelei', *think of the word 'jelly').
bubur dari buah-buahan yang dimasak dengan gula sampai kental
(biasanya dioleskan pada roti, kue, dan sebagainya);

definition translated :
'bubur' from fruits that are cooked with sugar until it's thick. usually served with bread, cake, etc...
It's even made the same way as marmelade
