Vegetable Pickle

How to make Vegetable Pickle

This recipe brings back lovely reminiscence from my aai's kitchen. As a kid I was a veggie lover, I know which is very unlikely. So my mom would make different dishes out of vegetables and this was one of them. This is a super delicious pickle with no preservatives. If you are expecting company for a few days; make this and would be a good side along with your main course. This has a shelf life of 10-12 days in the refrigerator.

Here is what we need -

  • 1 cup cauliflower florets
  • 1 carrot
  • handful green pees
  • 1 green chili
  • small piece of ginger
  • 1 spoon mustard seeds
  • pinch of asafetida
  • 1 tbs oil
  • 1 tbs pickle masala (store bought)
  • 1 spoon vinegar
  • 1 lemon

Whats Next -

Cut cauliflower to very small florets. Chop carrot to small cubes. cut green chili. Grate ginger. Microwave green pees for a minute or two. In a bowl mix in all the veggies.

In a pan heat oil; once hot add mustard seeds. as they start to sputter switch off the stove. Add asafetida. Add this seasoning in the bowl.

Add lemon juice, vinegar and pickle masala. taste it and adjust salt, lemon as per your taste. The pickle masala has salt so do not add it before tasting.

Store it in the air tight container.  

Let it sit for 12 hours so all the ingredients incorporate well.
