Penang Nyonya Style Vegetarian Pickle – Accar

This is one on my mum’s favourite recipe and it is a must have dish during festival season. She is at her eighties and can still dish out good Accar for the family. The way she manages the balance of sweetness, sourness and saltiness of the dish to perfection amazes me. I guess she must have got it right through years of experience. Mum’s cooking is the best!
