It’s so convenient to go to the Indian grocery store to buy pickles but have you ever wondered how long the bottle sat on the shelf before you picked it up? Well, you won’t wonder when you make this easy Carrot and Green Chili Pickle recipe at home — with fresh ingredients! You will be able to control the amount of salt you use and tailor it to your tastes.

Ingredients:

Carrots – 1/2 lb (peeled and thick julienned)

Salt – 2 tsp (or to taste)
Oil – 4 Tbsp
Rai Kuria – 2 tsp
White Vinegar – 2 tsp
Asafoetida (Hing) – 1/8 tsp

1. In a large mixing bowl, add Carrots, Chilies and 2 tsp Salt.
2. Mix well, cover and keep aside for about 2 hours (mix in between).
