Instant Radish-Carrot Pickle

Pickling is a process of preserving food by soaking and storing it in vinegar or brine.No Indian meal is perfect without it.Pickles enhances the taste of your meal.Here is my recipe for instant radish-carrot pickle which my mom makes during winter time.

Radish 250 gm
Carrot 250 gm
Vinegar 1 tbsp
Rai/Mustard seeds 1 tbsp
Turmric pw 1 tsp
Red chili pw 2 tsp

1. Wash and peel the veggies and cut in lengthwise pieces.Place on a plate and let them dry(you can keep it in sun but I let it remain inside the kitchen only).
2. After that put them in a clean and dry bowl and add the other ingredients.Mix it well.
3. Pour this pickle in a dry air tightening jar and keep it for 1 day like that.Do shake it meanwhile 2-3 times so that the seasoning will cover all the pieces.
4. It is ready to eat now and can lasts for 10 days.
