This bright, fresh, crisp, and delicious condiment or dipping sauce is incredibly easy to make. It's a must have when you are serving satays, but you'll also see it served as a condiment for other foods made with Thai yellow curry as the spice, such as Kaeng Kari Gai (Yellow Curry Chicken).

How to Make Ajaat; Ajad; Achad
Detailed Step-by-step Method:Print these instructions >
1) Heat the vinegar to almost boiling in a small saucepan. Add the sugar and salt, and boil slowly until all is dissolved. Remove from the heat and allow the mixture to cool to room temperature.
2) Add the cucumber, shallots, chili, and coriander leaves (cilantro) to the sweet and sour mixture. Let it sit at room temperature for about 15 minutes, then it's ready.
Note: I like to serve this really cold, but served at room temperature is also fine.
