  • 6 shallots sliced
  • 1 cup cucumber cut in half and sliced
  • sliced chilies any kind and as many as you prefer
  • cups water
  • 3 ⁄4 cup granulated sugar
  • 6 tablespoons vinegar


  • Over medium-low heat, dissolve the sugar in the water and add vinegar.
  • Stir until thickened up and remove from heat to let cool.
  • Put the vegetables and a bowl and pour the cooled vinegar mixture over the vegetables when the toast is ready to be served.


This recipe was used to go with my 32-piece Thai pork toast recipe. If you need less ajaad, just make sure you keep the ratio the same.
