29.10.2013 - Batam. Make an express Acar pickled for my fried rice for lunch.
Acar pickled is very easy to make and eat after 30 mins marinated with all the seasoning is what i like to eat. Eat a not overnight or longer than 3 hours marinate acar is that crunchiness and freshness together with that sour and sweet taste that excite me. Acar pickled can go along with any dishes like kurma/briyani rice & chicken etc. I can say its a perfect match with all dishes.. Acar can keep over night.
Above Acar i used 1 big carrot peel and cut into small size, 1 big cucumber discard seeds and slice. In a bowl, let all vegy soak in hot water for 5 minutes and discard hot water remain a about a cup. Add in 1/3 cup vinegar ( to taste ) and granulated sugar ( to taste ) and mix well. set aside for 30minutes and it is ready to eat. Acar is best to keep overnigh.
