Vegetable Achat

My mom make her famous nutty vegetable achat last week.Actually my first aunt gave us some of her achat during CNY but her achat is so watery and sour.Then my mom promised me that she going to make her own achat for me to try..Here is goes.......
Long bean,brinjal,cucumber,carrot and cabbage was cut and steam before squeeze the liquid out dry,set aside Fried peanut and sesame seed until brown and crush it roughly.My mom blended some fresh turmeric(kunyit),galangal (lengkus),lemongrass(serai),garlic(bawang putih),shallot(bawang kecil)dried long pepper,candle nuts(buak keras) and belacan as the paste.Add sugar and vinegar to the taste.

This is how it's look before spread with crush peanut and sesame seed.I like my achat taste nutty and tasty..My mom add plenty of crush peanut to make the sauce thicken and flavoured..I remember,I did buy achat in Malaysia restaurant in NYC years ago ,it's so watery and tasteless..I never attempt to buy again ever since....but after trying my mom 's achat,I quickly ask for her recipe..I'm going to make my own achat when I'm back in NY..

Looks a simple healthy recipe akin to a Filipino dish, lumpia (did I spell that right?).
