Winters in North of India, and the Iconic Gajar Gobhi Shalgam Ka achar are known to be enjoyed by all.
To me I was Introduced to this Winter favourite after my inclusion in the Mittal Family. But for years Bhuaji would send a jar full of it, before I learnt it from her. I always enjoyed the pickle, and more happily enjoyed seeing SM relishing the chunky pieces of Turnip and cauliflower been fished out of the jar, while I enjoyed the carrots. This pickle has a fair portion of Garlic in it, and May be this is one reason I never saw this been made at mom’s place , where it is strictly No onion No garlic Kitchen.
She did tell me all the required proportions, but I was reluctant to ask her the finer details.
So I struggled for about four five attempts of something or
the other going wrong with the Achar.
My recipe is a reflection of improvisation over learning and Now I can Make this Without even thinking twice, flawless, and polished off in minutes when served. It is Best served with meals, and I like it with my karhee, Or the Gram flour Curry.
How my Mom also has developed a liking for it
Who says this can’t be made without quintessential Punjabi’s favourite , garlic. I somewhere in heart knew that Mumma will like it for its sweet and sour flavours, and more with the gingery falvours in it. Now I make it every year for mom, without garlic, a bit spicier than usual, as they like it. I call it my marwari version.
