Kali Gaajar ki Kaanji - A winter speciality :)

So finally am inspired to blog! ;) All thanks to ma ! :)
She's a great cook (and a great sport as one can see in the photo! :D) and I don't want her recipes to be lost. As far as I am concerned, I've been a less than frequent guest in the kitchen! So am crossing my fingers and jotting down the recipe... All the best! :)

Here's her recipe for

Kali Gaajar ki Kaanji:


Black/Purple Carrots - 0.5 kg
Mustard Oil - 1 tbsp
Canola / Mustard Seeds (rai/ sarson) - 50 gm
Turmeric powder (haldi) - 1 tsp
Red Chilly Powder (laal mirch) - 3-4 tsp
Salt - 10 tsp
Water - 5.5 l


Peel the carrots, wash them and cut them in small pieces (to be precise: 1x4 cm). Blanch the pieces for about 5 minutes and then add canola/mustard seeds, chilly powder, salt, turmeric and 1 tbsp mustard oil. Once the mixture cools down, put it in a glass jar and keep it in the sun for 4-5 days.

Taste and see if you've succeeded! ;)

Happy cooking! :)))
