Dua Gia – Pickled Chive and Bean Sprouts

Dua Gia – Pickled Chive and Bean Sprouts

Serving: 3 Servings

1 ½ lb Bean sprouts
1 Carrot (shredded)
½ lb Chives (cut crosswise, 1 ½ inch long)
1 Red onion (thinly sliced)
½ Cup white distilled vinegar
1 Cup warm water
Salt and sugar to taste


1 - Combine bean sprouts, carrots, chives, and red onion in a bowl. Set aside.
2 - In a bowl combine vinegar, warm water, salt and sugar according to taste, then add mixture to vegetable. Make sure that all the vegetable is submerged in the vinegar mixture.
3 - Let vegetable pickle in mixture for about 3-4 hours, then drain and serve.

This pickled vegetable goes best with any braised dishes, like for example thit kho. When you eat the two together you get the combination of sweet, sour, salty, and crunchy all mixed in one. It is the best two combo.
