Mixed Vegetable Pickle - Mixed Vegetable Pickle recipe

Vegetable Pickle - Vegetable Pickle Recipe

mixed vegetable pickleDuring my younger days, I was addicted to this pacman game
I have used almost all the vegetables used in this pickle for the the pacman presentation

As I have told you earlier that my mother is an expert in making pickles and this vegetable pickle is one of her specialties, which I am going to share with you all today. All of us in our family love this vegetable pickle, as the veggies in this pickle will be crunchy.Try this and you will love this. Only work is chopping all the vegetables finely. I used the onion chopper for chopping carrots and beetroots. If all the veggies are chopped and kept ready, then it takes only a few minutes to prepare this pickle .

Ingredients needed

Beetroot -1/2 of a beetroot
Bitter gourd -1/2 of a bitter gourd
Carrots - 2
Cluster beans/kothavarangai - 6
Beans - 6
Baby onions/Pearl onions - 10-12
Broad beans/ avaraikai - 6
Ginger - 2 inch piece
Lemon - 1 ( cut it into small pieces)
Green chillie -2 finely chopped

Total vegetables should be equal to 4 cups ( heaped).
You should not use vegetables with water content. You can include 4-5 pods of garlic if needed.

Chillie powder -30 grams
Crystal salt (preferable) - 90 grams (Use less if using table salt)
Oil - 1/2 cup
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
White vinegar -5 tbsp

For the seasoning

Mustard - 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida 1/2 tsp

Preparation

Wash all the vegetable and wipe it dry. Leave it for an hour to dry.Then chop all the vegetables finely.

Take veggies ( 4 cups heaped) in a vessel. Add salt, turmeric powder, chillie powder and white vinegar and keep aside.

Heat oil in kadai/pan and add mustard seeds. When mustard splutters, add asafoetida and pour the hot oil on the vegetables. Do not mix it immediately. Let the vegetables remain soaked in oil for some time.Leave it for 10 minutes, then mix it and bottle it.

It stays good in the refrigerator for 2-3 months if handled properly.
