Nyonya achar is truly an acquired taste. I used to eat this seasonally, as my mum would make these maybe once or twice a year. It's a lot of work to prepare, so the high price tag is justified (RM14 for a jar). It's basically pickled vegetables, with the highlight being pickled green chili stuffed with young papaya.
Generally, everything is equally sour and sweet, and the chili is somewhat spicy. It can be eaten as snacks or together with rice and dishes.
