Indian Style Carrot Pickle

Got extra carrots?  Here is a tasty Indian style carrot pickle recipe.

Pickling is an art. Pickling is a process by which fish, meat or vegetables are preserved for out of season use.  The medium of pickling is different from country to country and most of the time brine or vinegar is used.  In India, oil and spices are the main ingredients of pickles and that's why Indian pickles taste different than others. Indian pickles are generally served with rice or roti as a side dish.

Carrot is a root vegetable with a great source of Vitamin A. Carrot is a versatile vegetable in Indian cuisine as various delicious recipes can be prepared from main course, sides and sweets. Carrot pickle is a special carrot recipe which I love to enjoy with roti or Indian bread.
