How to make Shalgam Gajar Aur Gobhi Ka Achar Recipe
To begin making the Shalgam Gajar aur Gobhi Ka Achar Recipe, we will first wash the vegetables well.
Wash the trunips and carrot and peel them. Cut into thin slices.
Wash the cauliflower and cut into small florets.
Bring 2 liters of water to a boil in a large pot.
Add the vegetables once the water comes to a rolling boil.
Cook the vegetables for 3 - 4 minutes and then drain the water.
Spread the vegetables on a cotton cloth and let them dry completely for 3-4 hours. There should be absolutely no moisture in the vegetables.
Mix mustard seeds, chili powder, turmeric powder, salt and vegetables in a bowl and keep aside.
Heat mustard oil in a pan till it starts to fume. Turn off the heat and let the oil cool slightly.
Pour the oil over the vegetables and give it a good stir. Transfer the pickle into a clean steralized jar along with the oil. Cover the jar with a muslin cloth tied with a string around and keep the jar in the sun for 2-3 days. The process of keeping it in the sun helps in getting rid of the excess moisture and also helps the pickle to marinate.
The Shalgam Gajar aur Gobhi Ka Achar Recipe once marinated can be served along with your favorite parathas, mathri's or chawal. You can store the pickle for about 3 months in a cool and dry place or refrigerate for a longer time like 4 to 5 months.
