instant carrot pickle recipe | gajar ka achar recipe with step by step photos and video recipe. pickles are the great condiments. pickles are prepared by vegetables or fruits which are then marinated in salt water and indian spices. however, gajar ka achar is an instant version of Indian pickle prepared with thinly sliced carrots.

I love to have pickles and chutneys in my meals 😜. This is the reason I always look for these kinda condiments. My mommy used to make a different version of instant carrot pickle.the version I am sharing today is an Andhra style. What makes the Andhra pickles unique is the use of mustard seeds.In Gujarat, we easily get powdered mustards (rai dal) from the market. in most of our pickle, this coarse powdered mustard is used. While in Andhra pickles, whole mustard seeds are dry roasted first before preparing the powder. I observe that both powdered mustard has a different flavor.

the instant version of carrot avakaya can be served immediately for your meal. however, it tastes great when preserved for 1 day and then served. this ensures all the spicy and salty flavors are rightfully absorbed by thinly sliced carrots. This pickle remains fresh for 2 days. I do not suggest to keep this pickle for more than 3 days.
