In Pakistan pickle is something without which every house is incomplete. It is our traditional condiment and a must have on every dining table. When you have nothing to eat at home you can just cook a roti or paratha and eat it with pickle. You can also enhance the flavour of any simple meal by combining it with spicy and tangy pickle. I always make sure that I make it before it gets finished in my kitchen. Pickle also helps in digestion and it is a very good source of important nutrients. My recipe of mix vegetable pickle is very simple but it is delicious and mouthwatering.

 Because its winter in Pakistan, I have used some winter vegetables (carrots, cauliflower) and some all season vegetables (green chillies, and garlic) for making pickle. You can use any seasonal vegetables and make pickle by this recipe. It is a perfect way to preserve seasonal veggies and enjoy them off season also. for making pickle you just have to cut veggies, blanch them, and then fry them with spices. Spice mixture plays an is very important role in making your pickle tasty.

Traditional pickle (achaar) spices are salt, red chillies, turmeric, fennel seeds, nigella seeds, mustard seeds, coriander seeds, and cumin seeds. Pickle by taste is tangy and to incorporate that taste people mostly add tangy vegetables like lemons and raw mangoes. But we can also use raw mango powder or vinegar to make it tangy. Vinegar also helps to preserve pickle for long time but here in Pakistan mustard oil is used for this purpose. Some pickles are made and consumed immediately but some are made with shelf life up to two years.

Some tips for making mix vegetable pickle

  • To increase shelf life of pickle and to save it from fungus, make sure your pickle is dipped in mustard oil or vinegar completely.
  • Salt also helps in preserving pickle so, keep your salt content a little high in it. Do not worry about more salt because pickle is eaten in a small quantity with other things in combination with other things which balance its more salt.
  • When you blanch vegetables, do not blanch delicate veggies like green chillies, turnip, onions. Make sure your all veggies are completely dried when you add spices and oil in them.
  • Try to cut your veggies in bigger chunks otherwise they are completely crushed and mixed up after some time but if you like them this way then you can.
