Pickled Cucumber with Chili is a very simple & easy side dish to make. There’s no cooking or baking involved. Perfect for kitchen n00b like my mom. Ahem. Ahemmm… 😛
This age-old recipe is from my beloved grandma. According to her she had made this dish before she were even married. The time when my great grandparents were still here. Ahh I miss my Ah Chor (great grandma). This recipe is over half century old. An antique recipe!
Because this is my grandma’s recipe, I’m pleased to have her prepare this dish for us. So don’t freak out when you see the hands of an old woman in the pictures below. They’re wise & experience hands. 🙂
The 2 main superstars in this dish; cucumber and chili. For extra spiciness you can use 2 chilies or replace 1 regular chili with 2 bird’s eye chilies.
Chill the bowl for few hours. The longer the better. You can prepare this dish in the late morning. By evening everything will be ‘pickled’ good. 🙂
Hope you enjoy them too!
