Atjar Tjampoer is an Indonesian-Dutch sweet and sour pickled vegetable dish.  The word “tjampoer” which means “mixed”, is a reference to several types of vegetables used to make the dish.

Atjar Tjampoer originated in the East Indies and traveled with Dutch sailors around the globe, evolving along the way to suit local tastes and condiitions.

This dish is still popular among the descendants of both the colonizers and colonized.  It’s an everyday food not only in the Netherlands but also in Indonesia.  Its sourness cuts through rich dishes, and its sweetness offsets spicy ones.
