Indian style carrot pickle is different from other pickles.  Indians use oil and spices in pickling which makes it different from other pickles.

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.

  4. Keep it in an airtight container. 

METHOD OF MAKING CARROT PICKLE:
  1. Heat oil in a pan.  Remove from heat and keep it aside to cool down. 
  2. In a large bowl take the grated carrots and all the other ingredients except vinegar and mix well. 
  3. Pour the oil into the bowl and mix well. 
  4. Now add vinegar and mix well. 
  5. Now transfer everything in a glass bottle.
  6. Keep the bottles under sun for 1 week till the carrots melt .
  7. Now the carrot pickle is ready to serve. 
  8. You can preserve it for longer periods but make sure your glass container is air tight. Give the pickle bottle under sun once or twice in a month and shake the bottle sometimes so that the oil in the pickle touches all the ingredients well.

Assamese Anguli Pitha Recipe

Anguli pitha is a finger shaped recipe made from rice flour.  The Assamese word 'anguli' means fingers and 'pitha' is a type of rice cake. It's an Assamese style recipe that can be served as breakfast(jolpan) or as a snack with the evening cup of tea.

The recipe anguli pitha requires little time to prepare.  As today is Sunday, a holiday, I decided to prepare this recipe for breakfast. It's a very simple and less spicy recipe. This recipe that I am going to share is a salty one but there is one sweeter version of this anguli pitha recipe, which I will share some other day. The type of rice that I am using is called 'lahi chawl' in Assamese which I received from my maternal uncle who is a farmer and he grows rice on his own paddy field. You can use any other type of rice also.  You can also use ready-made rice flour available in the market.  But I preferred to make it myself and therefore I soaked 1 cup of rice on Saturday night to prepare anguli pitha.

Cheese Corn Toast Recipe

Cheese Corn Toast is a simple breakfast recipe that can be prepared within just 5 minutes. This cheese corn toast is my daughter's favorite.  I made this last Saturday.  If you are a follower of me on Instagram , I'm sure you have seen this pic.  With the similar idea I made Roti Pizza (Indian flat bread pizza) last Sunday.


As my daughter doesn't like onion and capsicum, I haven't added these two veggies on the toast. But if you like, you can add. I'm using ready to eat sweet corn here to save time. It's a no oven recipe.  I made it in a flat pan (Tawa).

Indian Red Lentil Soup with Lentil Dumplings/ Assamese style Bor diya Tenga Dail

I generally use sun dried lentil dumpling in red lentil soup which are easily available in markets and it also saves time.  But in this recipe I made dumplings myself from urad dal (split black gram). It is very soft and fluffy in comparison to the dried one. Dried one is little hard and you can directly add it to the dal after shallow fried.

Indian red lentil soup with lentil dumplings can also be served as a side dish with rice. It is very easy to prepare as I'm using pressure cooker to cook red lentil.  You need to soak split black gram for few hours to make dumplings. The dumplings can be prepared by dip frying instantly after the batter is blended.
