Instant Carrot Pickle

Eventhough Sun god is not often present here, i dont forget to make my pickles when its summer here..My DH love pickles, mostly his favourite goes for mango pickle or  lemon pickle...Sometimes i go for easy veggies pickles, my mind immediately goes for instant version, this time i prepared pickle with carrots, since my vegetable basket always have carrots..This carrot pickle is very quick and also tastes awesome with curd rice, sambar rice or along with lemon rice..Carrot pickle is one of the easiest and most economical pickles to make..With a bright beautiful orange colour, this pickle goes awesome even with rotis too..It can be eaten the same day its made, but they will stay prefect even for three or four days if they are kept in fridge..

Instant Carrot Pickle

1cup Carrots(cut as jullienes)
1tsp Chilly powder
1/4tsp Asafoetida powder
2tsp Mustard seeds+1/2tsp mustard seeds for tempering
2tsp Fenugreek seeds
2tbsp Lemon juice
2tsp Oil
Salt

Dry roast the mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds, asafoetida powder and grind as fine powder..heat oil, let splutters the mustard seeds, add immediately the carrot jullienes and saute in simmer until they get bit cooked, add immediately the red chilly powder, salt and grounded powder (as per need) and saute until the veggies gets well coated, take care not to over cook..Carrots should stay bit crunchy..finally add the lemon juice and put off the stove..

Enjoy with any sort of rice or rotis..

  28. Even sun god seems to be angry here... and rain god is angry on me too... Whenever I go out of the office or house it starts raining. :( what to do...

    I never heard about carrot pickle before. Carrots are good for eye sight. I would love to have them... but the only problem is who will prepare it. Then we finally decided(we means I and the friends in house) to prepare it altogether.

    Thanks for sharing the recipe priya.
