Thai Cucumber Relish (Ajad)


This Thai cucumber relish or Ajad we called.  It’s slightly simple sweet in vinegary syrup.  A condiments to Thai dishes.  We particularly like to serve them with fish cake, satay and a few dishes in the Thai-Muslim cuisine as a Thai yellow curry chicken etc.

  2. In a small serving bowl add sliced cucumbers, sliced shallots and red spur chilies.
  3. Pour boiled vinegar mixture over that and mix well.
  4. Spoon into a small serving cup to accompany spicy fish cakes or satay, Khanom Pang Na Mou, Thai yellow curry chicken etc.
