A Witch in the Kitchen: "Sweet and Sour Sauce with Cucumber."

in #food3 years ago

Hello Dear Witches...!

Yesterday I invited my brother and his wife to dinner, they live upstairs, but sometimes days go by and we don't manage to share more than a couple of whatsapp´s, so with the idea of sharing a little quality time and a good conversation, it occurred to me to prepare a fried chicken rice, I have already passed the recipe for this, which is also very easy to prepare, fast and yielding, a complete wonder. However, fried rice always needs a good dose of sweet and sour sauce, which is also super easy and quick to make.

I added a touch of crunchi and cucumber freshness, which made this sweet and sour sauce a success, the combination of textures and flavors was perfect. I've seen in some Chinese restaurants how they put some fruits like milky and pineapple to this type of sauces, others where they put carrot and cucumber already cooked, but really are not to my liking, its texture is not the most pleasant for my palate.

I tell you that I completely forgot that my brother hates cucumber, but as I love it I missed it this time, however I encouraged him to try the combination, sauce, cucumber, fried rice, and leave nothing on the plate, I pass the test and I asked for more, which represents for me a total success. But come with me and I will show you how to prepare this delicious sauce. Enjoy! .


  • 1/2 cup rice vinegar or white vinegar.
  • 1/2 Cup of sugar.
  • 2 tbsp Kétchup tomato sauce.
  • 1 Small cucumber chopped to taste.

  • Preparation

    • Difficulty level: Low
    • Preparation Time: 5 Minutes
    • Baking time:5
    • Time Total: 10 Minutes

    • In a small pot add the sugar and vinegar and take to the stove over medium heat, mixing until the sugar dissolves, at this point add the ketchup and continue mixing until it integrates very well, this will take just a few seconds.

      For those who do not wish to add any fruit or vegetable our sauce would be ready, however I continue. With the sauce still hot we proceed to pour the mixture on the cucumber that we have chopped, we stir and cover, we serve still hot.

      To bathe a delicious fried chicken that accompanies this rice, this sauce is simply ideal, my father is a lover of this sauce, well me too, both he and I love to dip the bread in it, I think I'm not the only one who loves to do this. And you, what do you accompany this delicious sweet and sour sauce with?

      I'm glad you liked it!

      I can just imagine eating that, wish I had some here

      It's really delicious, I think I'll repeat it again!

      A lovely sweet and sour sauce. I have made it for meatballs.

      With meatballs!!! I have to try them, I have eaten them with fried chicken and even with chicken in teriyaki sauce but never with meatballs! You awaken my curiosity jajaja

      I added a cup of pineapple juice to it. Thickened then with a bit of corn starch.

      hummm pineapple, it's a delicious combination, I love it!

      Looking good!Send some ASAP!


      I think it's over hahaha, there's nothing left really, here everyone loved her! Thanks for your support! Blessings!

      We made something similar here in Bangladesh. It always tastes good.
      You made me hungry. :)

      I have to see how that is, certainly the food in Bangladesh always looks delicious!

      My suggestion would be to include the link to your rice recipe! This looks scrumptious!

      I made this recipe a long time ago but I published it only in Spanish, I will have to do it again and publish it in English to share it with you, But you're still right, I should have placed the link to the recipe of rice, likewise here I leave you, with the help of a translator you can read it while I make a new recipe!

      Thank you!

      It looks delicious my friend!
      You can certainly make magic with your meals.

      In Asia, like Indonesia, my country, often see cucumber like this with sour taste but fresh. :)

      The cucumbers here are very fresh and with a somewhat sweet taste, I love to eat them just with salt and pepper, they are a great snack to control a little anxiety!

      Looks yummy. I've mixed ketchup with various things before, but not like this. I'll have to give this a try.

      Ketchup really is a very versatile ingredient. Many only use it for pasta and hot dogs, so it's delicious too!

      I have to quit reading these food posts right before bed @fmbs25. Sounds yummy! 😁

      jajajaja that laughs, although I do see this kind of thing before I go to bed, gives me ideas for the next day! "I'll be chubby forever"

      Looks like a nice dish to make with cucumber side added.

      Not everyone likes cucumber, which is not bad, I particularly love it!

      If you love cucumber like I do, you can buy either normal or English cucumber, grate into a bowl skin on/off your decision, lightly sprinkle salt and pepper over, then drizzle with grape vinegar (I use brown, either will do), leave standing for 10 minutes and eat as a salad, yummy refreshing and delicious.

      I would have never thought of adding cucumber to that sauce. Thanks for sharing.

      Great instructions, @fmbs25! I have a very different recipe for fried rice, so it was interesting to see this version.

      I'm mesmerized! Hope you had a great time.
