Acar Kuning

Acar Kuning. “Pickle” is called “acar” in Indonesian, it usually refers to “preserved vegetables in vinegar and salt” such as cucumber, carrot and shallot. This “acar kuning” (yellow pickle) has the same base ingredients but it’s cooked, has more intense flavor because of many spices such as garlic, turmeric, galangal, candle nuts, etc and yellow-colored (from the turmeric). Today I used Cucumber, Carrots, Cabbages, Pinapples and Cauliflowers.

These acar is perfect as condiments for your fish or chicken dishes, served with peanuts 🙂
