Acar is a type of pickling made in Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore. The South East Asian variations are usually made from different vegetables such as cucumbers, carrots and cabbage which are pickled in vinegar and chillies. In Indonesia, acar bening is commonly made from small chunks of cucumber, carrot, shallot and occasionally pineapple, and marinated in a sweet and sour solution of sugar and vinegar. Some households add lemongrass or ginger to spice it up. Acar is commonly served as a condiment to be eaten with a main course.
