This Carrot pickle is one of the easiest pickles to make. Fresh, firm and carrots without blemish will work like a charm for this pickle. Wash them thoroughly and wipe them with a clean cloth before use. Make sure carrots are completely dry because traces of water will make the pickle rancid.
With a beautiful bright red colour, this pickle goes very well with rotis or parathas. It is best eaten the day it is made. But it must be kept in the refrigerator to make it last for 4 days.
