My CookBook - Vegetable Pickle

Wondering whether am I good in cooking? Cos.... every time I blogged on where to eat right? Well, I do loves to cook. Not a real cook who know how to cook special & nicely designed dishes but cooking something very normal.

I do keep / buy some recipe book. The sources are all from magazine, internet, newspaper, etc. Hmm... must be guessing that my room have stack of magazine / book? Yes, there are a lot despite of the recipe book. Well, I am not someone who really follows what they stated in the recipe book & LOVES TO AMEND THE RECIPE. Well, I can't exactly follow what they have written in the recipe book just because I don't have / want to buy some of the ingredient. Another thing is sometimes the recipe does not show the whole steps to make the dishes..Hahah... I believe some of you are same like me.

Here I will still state the original & steps of the recipe. Then, to show what exactly I did to amend the original recipe. Well, you can amend by yourself also.

4. 1 large cucumber (peeled)
5. 2 carrots (sliced thin)
6. 1 large onion (sliced thin)
7. 2 red chillies (sliced thin)

6. 3 large onions (peeled & sliced thin)

1. Peeled & discard seeds.

2. You will need to cut thinly the onions using knife.

3. Sliced thin the cucumber & carrots using the vegetable / fruit peeler. I know there is another type of peeler but I would recommend this one. You will know why where you will see later in the next picture.

4. Thinly sliced cucumber (thin texture).

5. Thinly sliced carrots & cucumbers.

6. Combined vinegar, sugar & salt in a bowl. Stir until sugar & salt dissolved.

10. Place it in a plate & add additional 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Mixed around.
11. Keep in the fridge.

Note: You can add the chillies too. The recipe which Eva shows is something I can grabbed from my fridge.

Phew!! At last, my first recipe in my own blog. It is not easy to do 2 things in a time, i.e. preparing the dish & snapping the process/steps photo. Poor Eva cos everything need to do by herself. Heheh..

Enjoy the dish! Stay tuned.
