There are 2 methods to make pickled bean sprouts. The first method is more traditional, and requires more time than the second method.

Ingredients (same for both methods):
-2lbs bean sprouts
-2 carrots
-1 small bunch chives or green onions (about 100g)
-3 cloves garlic (optional)
-3 chilies (optional)
-1 tsp salt
-3 tbs sugar

Getting Ready:
Crush and mince garlic and chilies. Wash and drain bean sprouts. Cut carrots into thins strips, cut chives into 2 inch long pieces. Mix together bean sprouts carrots and chives with garlic, chilies, salt and sugar.

Method 1:
Add everything into a clean container, the fill with rice water (water from washing rice before cooking). The sprouts should “ripen” within a day or two.

Method 2:

After mixing all ingredients together, add ¾ cup vinegar and toss well. Toss the sprouts every hour or two. The sprouts should wilted and ready within a few hours.

I came across your "Dua Gia" recipe the other day. Tried it and loved it.
