This tangy relish is a perfect complement to barbeque dishes, fried chicken and fish. The sweetness or sourness of the sugar-vinegar  mixture depends on the concentration and type of vinegar you are using. The ratio of the sugar to vinegar in this recipe maybe too sweet for you but if this happen then you add more vinegar. But if it sour, then add sugar. Once you've got your desired taste, then remember the sugar-vinegar ratio as well as the brand and type vinegar you have used.
