So, what is asam gelugur?

Asam gelugur, also known as Garcinia atroviridis, is a tart fruit commonly used as a souring agent in Southeast Asian cuisine. It has a distinctive tangy flavor and a slightly sour taste, making it an excellent substitute for tamarind or vinegar. The fruit is small and green, with a slightly waxy texture and a bitter taste when eaten raw. Asam gelugur is often dried and ground into a powder or used in its fresh form in curries, stews, and salads. Its sourness makes it a popular ingredient in traditional Malay, Thai, and Indonesian dishes, and it is also believed to have medicinal properties.
