We have already told you about the cute but mysteriously looking komkomber chiki or West Indian Gherkin in our ingredients section. Now it is time to get cooking.
On a recent Sunday afternoon, I had lunch at Landhuis Dokterstuin, a place where locals and tourist alike come for authentic local food. I tried the dish with stewed komkomber chiki, to hopefully start up the inspiration-flow. To be honest, it was the first time I tried this veggie, because I had never known what to do with it.
But now that I am in the midst of my Caribbean food spell, things are different. Immediately several ideas came to mind. I think that they will make a great addition to a vegetable curry. And I want to pickle them. But first, I made this delicious sweet relish. Try it on a hotdog with some chipotle mayonnaise. The heat of the chipotle perfectly balances the sweetness of the relish. Enjoy!
