Guest post – Instant Carrot pickle
We all know that Carrots are a really good source of vitamins, minerals and fibre. These protect our body against cancer and cardiovascular diseases. These are also good for our eye sight.
Carrots pair up well with any vegetable like potato, peas, cabbage etc. These add taste and color to stir fries, fries rice and even chowmein. Salads in winters are incomplete without carrots.
There are so many ways to eat this nutritious vegetable. Yet today I am sharing with you one more way to eat carrots. Instant carrot pickle.
This recipe and photo has been shared with us by GUNJAN. In this recipe she has used already made pickle masala which we generally have left from our mango pickles making it quite easy to prepare it.

Is there an alternative to mango pickle masala. Don’t have at home? Also want to avoid oil.
Hello Vijayalakshmi. If you do not have mango pickle masala at home then you can add regular masalas used in pickles.
like asafoetida (heeng) + to be ground into a coarse mixture- fennel seeds, fenugreek seeds(daana methi), nigella seeds( kalonji) + mustard oil. check my lesue ka achaar post to understand their ratio.
I am sorry I can not help you with the exact quantity. This mixture should make 3-4 spoons according to the recipe.
Brilliant recipe Nidhi! It is tasty and at the same time healthy. I just got into the habit of cooking at home and been browsing online for interesting recipes, ideas and inspirations. Am definitely going to try this one.
