Vietnamese Pickled Vegetables Recipe - Cách Làm Đồ Chua/ 越式泡菜的做法



Ingredients


  • 500 g/ 17.6 oz carrots
  • 600 g/21.2oz radish
  • 1 litre/ 4 cups tap water
  • 300 g/ 10.6 oz sugar
  • 300 ml/ 10.6 oz vinegar

  1. Wash and peel carrots & radish.
  2. Cut off ends.
  3. Use knife or veggie cutters to cut into thin slices (3mm/ 0.2") formed like a flower petal. Regular chips do, too, if you don't need them to look decorative.
  4. Transfer into an appropriate container which MUST NOT be made of aluminium, copper or brass. (Otherwise the acid in the vinegar can release hazardous metal particles from the container into your food.)
  5. In a pot, bring the rest of the ingredients to a simmer over high. Once it's simmering, turn off the heat and let it cool down until merely warm.
  6. Pour the mixture into the container filled with the veggies, wait for everything to cool down and close the lid.
  7. Let everything rest for at least a day.
