Salmon, Nonya Achar, Vegies


The meal this evening was made special with fresh Nonya Achar. The recipe found in cook books etc was varied in the following ways. First instead of 100% vinegar a 50/50 mixture of water and vinegar was used. Second only fresh vegies in season were used. More cucumbers than usual were used because they were on special. Third the pounded ingredients included blachan, candle nuts and garlic and the garlic was not used elsewhere. Fourth the vegies were salted dry and left for a while then the salt washed off. Fifth at the time of adding sugar more vinegar and a small amount of fish sauce was added. Other than that the recipe was much the same as the standards.

With this dish you may as well make a lot because it goes quickly and it seems to "condense" when you put it into bottles for later.

The main dish this evening was fresh grilled salmon, potatoes, mushrooms, asparagus and an spinach omelette. The achar was added to the potatoes and mushrooms.
