Carrot Pickle

This is a slight variation of Radish Pickle (Mula ko Achar), a popular Nepali pickle.

It’s easy to prepare (takes less than 10 minutes), is oil-free, sugar-free, and full of flavor.

Carrot Pickle

You’ll only need 6 ingredients – carrots, ginger, chilies, salt, turmeric, and yellow mustard powder.

Simply cut the carrots + ginger + chilies, mix them with the rest of the ingredients and store it in an air-tight container for 2-3 days (in a cool, dark place).

Carrot Pickle

This carrot pickle makes a great addition to your rice-curries, roti-curries, or any Indian dishes in general. It is crunchy, slightly tangy,  and ‘mustardy’.

Recipe Notes

Do use a glove while stuffing the pickles in a jar. It prevents the chili burns. 🙂
