Recipe :
(A)
1 Large spanish turnip (mangkuang)
2 Large cucumber
1/2 pineapple
1 large carrot
3 tbsp of salt
Instruction: cut them into slices. Add salt and mix well. Put a side for approximately 20 minutes. Salt will make them crunchy and you will see quite a lot of water after that, remember to pour them away after the vegetables become softer and make sure they are dry before adding (B).

(B)
6 scallots
6-8 fresh red chili
some sesame
Instruction: Slice the scallots and blend the chili. Heat up your wok and start frying the sesame, followed by scallots and lastly, the chili. DON'T COOK THEM ALL TOGETHER! One after another.



When (B) are ready, add them into (A) and mix well. Don't forget to add in approx. 200gm sugar together with half a bottle of white vinegar. Mum said is ok if add too much sugar, because we can always pour more vinegar. If you think is too sour to your liking, then you can add more sugar.

Thanks for posting this....sounds, looks great....sorry, what is spanish turnip? Any substitute? Philippines has something called sinkamas, is it the same? Sinkamas is round, kind of flat with a rough light brown skin and white inside. Crunchy and sweet.

Prepared this last weekend, now stored for a week in fridge. Here's the result.

have to wait about 3 days before eating else the vinegar overpowered the sesame seed and natural veggie taste.

Thanks for sharing.

PS-> Pics show left over from 3 days of eating it. yummy!!!!
