|Mixed Vegetable Pickle|
Here's how I make Mixed Vegetable Pickle:
1/4 cup cauliflower flowerets - mini size
1/4 cup carrots - chopped fine
1/4 cup peas - I use frozen, which I thaw and dry thoroughly with paper towel
1 tsp julienned ginger
1 clove garlic - chopped (optional)
Take these in a big glass bowl.
Add 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp red chilli pwd and 1/4 tsp asafoetida pwd.
Dry roast 1/4 tsp mustard seeds on medium heat for 3-5 mins, keep aside to cool.
Dry roast 1/8 tsp methi seeds for 2-3 mins, keep aside to cool.
Dry roast 1/2 tsp sesame seeds till lightly browned, keep aside to cool.
When cooled grind all 3 to fine pwd and add to veggies.
Heat 2 tbsp oil, cool completely and add that to the veggie + masala mix.
Lastly squeeze 1/2 lemon over the mix.
Mixed Vegetable Pickle is ready to eat.
I store this in a glass bottle in the fridge, it lasts for a month.
