Acar Awak/Nyonya Pickled Vegetables

Acar Awak/ Nyonya Pickled Vegetable is one of a distinct  Peranakan or Nyonya fare.A very simple version of mine with full of flavour.It does take some time to prepare the vegetable other than that its easy and quick to make.

This great,crunchy pickle well go with rice or pulut kunyit(glutinous rice cooked with turmeric) or even can be eaten as a starter.Mostly this is an essential accompaniment to all our Malaysian meal.I think we deserve it don't you?.
