furthermore, i learnt this instant pickle recipe from my father. while, he prefers and prepared only raw mango pickle. i have extended the same recipe to carrots. perhaps, my father is correct and mango pickle is anytime great compared to carrot. however, it is neither the season of mangoes, nor i get good mangoes for pickle here. hence, i have to live with carrot pickle recipe.

in conclusion, do check my other collections of chutney recipes and rice recipes. i personally, prefer carrot pickle to be served with coriander pulao or moong dal khichdi. but, you can also enjoy with jeera rice recipe, ghee rice recipe, carrot rice recipe and even with chow chow bath recipe.
