Vegetable Achar/Pickle


This tang-zang pickly pickle will forever remain as an appeasing-appetizing condiment. Made in advance, stored in bottles and kept in the fridge, achar/pickle (Salted Fish Pickle) will definitely taste a whole lot more heavenly once the veggies (Vegetable Green Curry & Vegetarian Mutton Varuval) are thoroughly soaked in the vinaigrette for a few days. To make, choose a day when you are "free as a bird", aha, not as in to fly wherever you like, but fly in your kitchen with time. Time must be on your side to prepare the veggies - cut, sliced, dried in the sun and then, basically, please go ahead to continue with tipping the veggies in the vinaigrette just at its boiling point. Dot. I'm so confident you will go and ahead make because vegetable achar/pickle I bet should be on stand-by for every other of our Malaysian rice meal. Tadaa!! Gotcha! Catcha! I will catch-up soon with you once I am ready with another nava-k's recipe. Bye.
