Carrot chilli garlic pickle

     My mother in law makes a carrot pickle which we relished with hot parathas as it was spicy, pungent as she put mustard oil in it and we loved it.I tried this version as we are fans of garlic.The colors are fabulous and taste really nice and strong.Have it with Indian food, crackers,sandwiches or with grilled food.It would serve as a great accompaniment.
Grated carrots                 250 gms
chopped green chillies        50 gms
crushed garlic                     50 gms
crushed mustard                   2 tbsp
Olive/Mustard oil                 2 tbsp
lime juice                             2 tbsp
salt to taste
haldi                                    1/4 tsp
Mix all the ingredients together and keep overnight in a covered pan.Next day mix well and fill in a jar.It ready in 2 days time.It would sour as the days go buy.In India due to heat the pickle would stay longer but here due to the conditions here, I would prefer to keep it in the fridge.It stays good for upto 2 weeks.Serve as an accompaniment.
