This tangy and addictive relish works as a side to many dishes, even pairing perfectly with Satay.

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes


  • ¼ cup (60 ml) rice vinegar
  • ½ cup (110 g) white sugar
  • 1 cucumber, diced
  • 2 tablespoons crushed roasted peanuts
  • 1 small chilli, diced


In a small saucepan over medium heat, add the vinegar and sugar to ¼ cup (60 ml) water. Bring to the boil and let it bubble for about 6 minutes, until the vinegar smell starts to mellow. Add the cucumber, peanuts and chilli, stir to coat well and then transfer to a bowl and leave to cool.

Cover and keep in the fridge until ready to serve.
