Carrot And Apple Pickle

I have come across this wonderful recipe in Rice, Spice and all Things Nice by Reza Mahammad. I tried it and found it so nice.

Carrot : 1 medium (Cut into pieces of 2 cm size)
Granny Smith Apple : 2 small (Cut into pieces of 2 cm size)
Green Chilly : 3 nos (split into half)
Mustard Seeds : 1 t spoon
Whole Cummin Seeds : 1/2 t spoon
Garlic : 1 clove (Chopped)
Curry Leaves : 1 sprig
Oil : 4 table spoon

For Marination:
Red Chilly Powder : 2 t spoon
Sugar : 2 oz
Ground Cummin : 1 t spoon
Oil : 2 table spoon

  1. Take all ingredients for marination in a bowl and add the chopped apple pieces to it. Add the apple immediately after chopping so that it wont be discolored. Marinate for 15 minutes.
  2. Heat a pan and add oil.
  3. Splutter mustard seeds, cummin seeds.
  4. Once ready add chopped garlic, curry leaves and saute it.
  5. Add chopped carrots and green chilly and cook for 5 minutes till carrots becomes soft.
  6. Add the marinated apples and continue cooking for 5 minutes.
The pickle is now ready. Allow it to cool and then put it into airtight container. It will last around 10 days.
