Easy & Quick Cucumber Carrots Achar (cucumber carrots vinaigrette salad)

Here's a simple Malaysian (Asian) style salad a.k.a achar. It's spicy, it's sweet and at the same time a little sour-ish. There are many different version available but here's one you can recreate at home in less than 30 minutes.

It's not exactly a healthy salad but hey, what makes you think the OTC or store bought salad sauces are healthy???
2 small size carrots, sliced or julienne 
1 cucumber, sliced or julienne 
1 tbsp distilled vinegar
1 tbsp granulated sugar
3/4 sea salt

Bring 1 tbsp distilled vinegar, 1 tbsp sugar and 1 tsp salt to boil.

Add 1 tsp crushed chillies. You may substitute this with fresh chillies

Mix in carrots and cucumbers. Let it cook for a minute

Dish out. Leave it to cool before serving. You may add sliced onions and pineapples

I ate mine with rice, curry chicken and fried eggs :)
