It’s that part of the year where the market is filled with the freshest of greens and vegetables. Winter is truly the best time of the year as you get a chance to savour the most delectable food and it would not hurt to sip on that extra cup of Chai!
But I had a different reason to rejoice this winter and it was the beginning of my blog lovecookserve.com. Cooking has always been my passion but I have finally decided to channelize what I have been cooking and showcase my food experiments to everyone.
This time, I wanted to try something new, something which I have never tried before and I came across a recipe of Shawarma by ‘Your Food Lab’ on Facebook. The dish turned out to be pretty well but the star of the dish was definitely the pickled vegetables. Therefore, this time on my blog post, will be only talking about ‘The Star’ i.e Pickled Vegetables made with Carrots, Beetroot and Green Chillies.
You can either have them in the form of a salad or stuff them in rolls and shawarmas. A melange of red and green, the pickle will give a beautiful colour to the dish. The pickle will get its tangy taste from the vinegar and a sweet touch with the addition of sugar. Follow the below recipe to make your own jar of pickle and store it in the refrigerator for at least a week.
Difficulty Level: Easy
Serving: 1 Jar
- 1 Carrot
- 1 Beetroot
- 5 – 6 Green Chilly ( Indian Chillies used for pickle)
- 3 tbsp sugar
- 1/2 cup Vinegar
- Salt to taste
- Boil water in a pan and blanch the carrot, beetroot and green chillies for a few minutes only. Please note that the vegetables should be boiled in such a way that its crunchiness is intact.
- Simultaneously, in another pan boil water and add vinegar to it. Mix in the sugar and add a dash of salt to it. Bring this mixture to a boil.
- Once, the mixture cools down, add in the vegetables and store the pickle in the jar.
- The pickle is ready to serve. However, the longer its stored the tastier it will be.
Do try the recipe and let me know how it turned out. Also, if you face any issues do drop in your questions.
Would love to hear from you!!
