Carrot pickle | Gajar hari mirch ka achar

Everyone loves pickles, so do I. I can specially have it with anything and everything. There are pickles which you can just mix it with hot rice and ghee and have it, few with plain chapati and paratha’s. When I was a kid I was not a big fan of vegetables specially green one. Yeah! I know few of you reading this will be going down the same memory lane. So my mum use to make this carrot Pickle and then sweet and tangy pickle with raw mango’s and then there are some pickles like sweet, spicy and some like tangy. In India you can almost find different types of pickle in every house. The funny thing is since pickle is available in many different version they have specially for kids as well like salted lemon pickle, sweet mango pickle.

I made the same pickle for my family and Mine got over within 4 days so you can imagine how they love it.

  • Next peel and cut the carrot and ginger ( just with knife slightly scrub it)in lengthwise as required (I have cut 2-3 inch long). I also slit few chilies and deseeded them. Similarly cut lemon into 4 pieces or more and make sure to remove the seeds.

  • Dry roast all the dry ingredients separately and grind it into coarse powder.
  • Now in a pan add oil. Once it’s hot add asafoetida and switch off the flame. Stir the oil with spoon gently twice to reduce the temperature of oil. Now add the carrot, ginger and chilies and stir ( Please do not add the lemon now ).
