Acar Mentah

                   Alot of us Nyonyas, I know my MIL do, love to make Acar Mentah.  Acar Mentah, for those who dont know what it is, is in simple language vegetables that are not cooked & pickled in a vinegary solution and so easy to prepare it, no sweat off your brows.


                          1                      Cucumber, leave skin intact but remove the core
                          2 slices            Pineapple
                          1                       Big Onion
                          1                       Fresh Red Chilli, discard chilli seeds
                          2                       Chilli Padi, opt

                          "Prickling solution

                          3 Tabsp           Vinegar
                          1 - 2 Tabsp       Sugar

  1. Combine everything in a bowl [dont use metal bowl or spoon to mix as it is an old wives' tale that Vinegar should not be put in a metal bowl.  I dont know how far it is true but I always adhere to my materal Granny's "rumblings".  Sekali never listen something jadi habis lah]. 
  2. Keep chilled.
                       Till my next post, xoxo, Ophelia
