Pickle is a tongue tickling condiment without which most of the Indian food is incomplete.

INGREDIENTS:

Carrots (peeled & cut into slices ) 2 cups
Salt 2 tsp
Ground mustard seeds 1 & half tsp
Red chili powder 1 & half tsp
Lemon Juice 1 & half tbsp
Turmeric 1/2 tsp
Asafetida 1/8 tsp
Mustard oil 1 tbsp

METHOD:

1. Peel, wash & cut the carrots into thin slices depending on your choice.

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.

NOTE

*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.
The major benefit of sun drying the carrots is that it will enhance the life of your pickle.
