Ensure that the mustard oil is hot enough before you add it to the spices, so that the oil absorbs the flavours of the spices well and mix with carrot and capsicum.

This is the best carrot pickle to make. So tasty and carrot and capsicum make a great combo. This is mildly spiced with a lovely flavour of mustard and fenugreek.
