Tomatoes in Sour Gravy (Air Asam Tomato)

Pin It Now!
I like salad. I used to have salad with main course. This tomato in sour gravy caught my attention after read from Wendy blog. It is actually perfect side dish to go with Nasi Daging Kedah. Since I do not take beef I just prepare the tomatoes salad to go with sambal ikan bilis (anchovy). It goes very well! Do try as it is really very appetite salad!
Adapted from Wendy
1 red onion, sliced
1 tsp finely sliced bird’s eye chilli
3 Tbsp lime juice
2 Tbsp sugar
½ -3/4 tsp salt
1 Tbsp fish sauce (omit)
1-2 Tbsp vinegar (or more lime juice)
1 tsp finely minced torch ginger bud(omit)
2.5 cups diced tomatoes

1. Mix sliced red onion with lime juice, sugar, salt, chilli and fish sauce. Let it sit for 1 hour.

2. Taste it and adjust with vinegar and more salt if needed. It should be sourish, spicy and a saltiness level that is just right (not oversalted).

3. Just before serving, mix in minced torch ginger and diced tomatoes. Serve!
*main side dish to go with Nasi Daging Kedah (beef rice).
