2. Place them under the sun for about 2-3 days*.

3. When the carrots are dried properly, mix all the above mentioned ingredients together with the carrots and put them in a jar.

4. Place the jar in the sun for one day.

Your Carrot Pickle is ready.


*You can discard the process of Sun drying the carrots for 2 – 3 days and can immediately add the ingredients into peeled & cut carrot slices after drying them with a kitchen towel.
