Best Carrot Chili Pickle

Eating freshly prepared pickle using seasonal vegetables is so much fun. The veggies tastes the best when they are in season. I love preparing and trying my hands on different type of pickles. Last time I prepared instant chili carrot pickle in mustard sauce, so this time when I got red carrot (Indian carrot), I decided to try something different. While thinking of what twist I can give to this pickle recipe, I remember tonnes of pickled grapes I have in my fridge. If you don’t have pickled grapes, you can use capers, green olives or raw karavande (karamda), it needs some sour raw fruit.

We Indians love pickle. I have many Indian pickle recipes like instant carrot pickle, instant grapes and mango pickle, gunda or lasoda mango pickle or my most famous chana fenugreek mango pickle. None of these pickles are possible without pickle masala.

You can store this pickle in refrigerator for few days. Let’s see how it’s made.
