Tangy Pickle

Cucumber and Carrot Pickle

Cucumber and carrots tossed in a tangy yellow mustard flavoured spice blend. Choose bright red coloured carrots that are sweet tasting for this recipe, as they blend beautifully with the tangy marinade. This pickle is often served as a variant to a salad in several Gujarati homes. Several instant and traditional pickles are laid out at the time of lunch or dinner for the diner to take his pick. No Gujarati meal is ever complete without pickles. This pickle does not last for many days, but it is not supposed to as it is meant to be consumed with the meal so that a whole new range of pickles can be prepared for the next meal.

Storage: upto 4 days.
Preparation Time:
