Mixed Vegetable Pickle

This is something I used to buy from grocery store. This time I just wanted to try by myself with a handful of veggies. Since I am the only person here in my house who eat pickle very often, I just tried with a little quantity of veggies.Here is the recipe.

Ingredients:-
  1. Carrot - 3/4 (chop it into 1" size)
  2. Lime - 1 (small - chop it into tiny pieces)
  3. Lemon - 1 (small - chop it into tiny pieces)
  4. Mango - 3 tbsp (chop into 1" size)
  5. Bittergourd - 1/2 (chop it into 1"size)
  6. Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  7. Red chillies powder - 1 tsp (acc to taste)
  8. Salt to taste
  9. Sesame Oil - 4 tbsp
  10. Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
  11. Asafoetida powder - a pinch
  12. Asafoetida powder - 1 tsp

There are two ways of making this pickle. First one is microwave the Veggies, lemon and lime for 3 mts. till it 3/4th cooked and season it. But I didn't microwave the veggies, I cooked it on stove top. Take a pan, pre heat oil, splutter mustard seeds, add asafoetida powder and add all the veggies and saute' for a minute. Now add turmeric powder, red chillies and salt and sprinkle a hand full of water and let it cook. When the veggies are fully cooked, add asafoetida powder and mix it well. Do not mash the veggies and do not over cook the veggies. This can be a wonderful side dish for curd rice.
