Recipe Notes

  • Chop vegetables in thick slices so that vegetables should not be mushy
  • If you are not using optional vegetables then increase the quantity of carrot and raddish or decrease the quantity of spices accordingly.
  • We are adding carrot first because it takes more time to cook then other vegetables we are using.
  • If you don’t have enough sunlight keep it inside the room for 6-7 stays
  • Keep stirring the contents of the jar 2-3 times a day with the help of a dry spoon
  • This pickle lasts only for 4-5 days if kept at room temperature. So you can refrigrate it for longer stay.However suggestion is to finish it in 4-5 days and make a fresh batch after that.
  • Keep the pickle in a dry place.
