Fresh mango & Carrot Achar/Pickle
A quick and easy-to-make pickle that tastes great with rice dishes, daal or even with bread/parathas.
Heat the oil in a small pan, and then add your mustard seeds. When they start to sputter, add your garlic and limro leaves, followed by the carrots. Stir fry the carrots for at least 8 mins until they start to soften (you can add a bit of water if you feel they are getting stuck). Sprinkle some salt to help further the softening of the carrots, then add the tomato paste and stir fry for a little longer. Add 2 of the green chillies at this point as well and a small sprinkle of the achar masala. Once the carrots are about three-quarters done, add the mango pieces, turmeric, chilli powder and the sugar. Stir fry for a few mins then add water to fully cook the carrots and mangos. Finally add the remaining green chillies and the rest of the achar masala. Cook for a few more minutes. Taste and adjust for salt/sugar/chilli. Switch off when you're happy with the result!! :)
