Tomatoes in Sour Gravy ~ Air Asam Tomato

I went to visit Vivian blog today. I saw this very appetizing salad, that is called Tomatoes in Sour Gravy (Air Asam Tomato). This looks like salsa to me and i love salsa. 
It is a side dish for eating together with Nasi Dagang Kedah.

Adapted from Wendy and Vivian
Ingredients:1 red onion, sliced
1 tsp finely sliced bird’s eye chilli
3 Tbsp lime juice
2 Tbsp sugar
½ -3/4 tsp salt
1 Tbsp fish sauce ( i omitted this)
1-2 Tbsp vinegar (or more lime juice)
1 tsp finely minced torch ginger bud(i omitted this)
2.5 cups diced tomatoes  

Methods:1. Mix sliced red onion with lime juice, sugar, salt, chilli and fish sauce. Let it sit for 1 hour.

2. Taste it and adjust with vinegar and more salt if needed. It should be sourish, spicy and a saltiness level that is just right (not oversalted).

3. Just before serving, mix in minced torch ginger and diced tomatoes. Serve!
This is main side dish to go with nasi daging/Beef rice here 

 This is very appetitzing and refreshing!! It is easy and simple to prepare and i definitely will make it again and again.
