Wow it is such a quick pickle recipe.. Its a nice accompaniment with parathas or even rotis. Very little kalonji also adds a very strong flavour to the pickle. It makes it even more tasty..

Crunchy pickled carrots. I liked the distinct peppery flavour of nigella seeds.Add a squeeze of lime juice to the pickle for little a peppery sour taste.

Extremely tasty and quick to make. You can use methia keri sambhar to replace red chilli powder and that will give the added zing. Kids also love this carrot pickle.
