Homemade Achar (Asian Pickled Vegetables)

“Achar, the best side dish for me!”

Helloooooo… Long time no post and hope you miss me (chuckles). I promised one of my readers who requested Achar recipe on my FaceBook to post the recipe for her soon. And, I hope this doesn’t come too late for her liking. :) Achar is known to be a Nyonya dish, but well-liked by many other Asian dialects, too. This is an Asian-style pickled vegetables dish which tastes sweet and sourish with a little bit of spicy flavour in it. Achar goes so well with plain porridge, rice, nasi lemak, fried bee hoon, or even to be eaten on its own!

Alluring Claypot Chicken & Eggplant Stew (惹味茄子鸡煲)

“It might sound familiar to you, but this is my new dish.”

I was so excited when had the first taste of it as I was unsure how the taste would be, actually. This is an entirely new dish which I have created and cooked just last night, I considered it as a success by the fact that the entire dish including the gravy was wipe up by my girl with extra serving of rice which she usually doesn’t need! She kept praising and describing to me how flavorful the dish was, and even gave me idea to adapt the same recipe for tofu stew. Not just my girl, I had extra rice to go with this dish, too. :)

Wasabi Prawns

“Many people tried to cook this failed dismally, but it would never be you! Here’s my simple and dainty prawn dish for you.”

I never thought such delicious prawn dish could be assembled that simple, initially. It might not look as beautiful as what the famous restaurant presents, but you would be impressed by the taste, or the simple steps found in this recipe.

If you are interested to make this, here is the recipe.

Do feel free to cook this for the older kids. My girl liked it a lot! However, you may want to reduce the amount of wasabi paste to just 1 teaspoon or lesser. Don’t intimidate the children by its pungency, especially if it is going to be their first taste of this dish. Make them like it, they will love you more. :)
