Carrot Pickle is an easy and yummy pickle variety. We usually love pickles especially home made ones. Our all time favourite is this Tomato Pickle. Am not a big fan of carrots, but I like this pickle. This is an instant pickle with not much fancy ingredients. Can be made in a jiffy. All you need to do is slice the carrots thickly, temper and add some seasoning. Is that not simple?!? 🙂 Do check out the quick video.

Here is the video..



Now to the recipe..

  1. Use a clean, dry spoon to handle the carrot pickle.
  2. Slice the carrots thickly and do not over cook the carrots. They must retain the crunchiness.
  3. U can add 2-3 crushed garlic cloves.
  4. For roasted fenugreek, mustard & fennel powder – dry roast (separately) 1 tsp of mustard seeds until it crackles,  1/2 tsp of fenugreek seeds just until u get a nice aroma and fennel seeds until u get a nice aroma. Grind separately. This will be very handy while making pickles.
  5. While adding the spice powders make sure the heat is low. Do not burn it, else it will spoil the taste.
