Gobhi Shalgam ka Achaar



Recipe Cook Time


Spice of winter. A spicy pickle of mixed vegetables, which is sweet and sour too.


  • 500 gm shalgam (turnips), scraped and sliced

    750 gm Gobi (cauliflower), cut into florets

    750 gm gajar (carrots), scraped and cut into pieces

    60 gm lassan (garlic), peeled, coarsely pounded

    60 gm ginger, peeled and chopped, coarsely pounded

    60 gm garam masala, powdered

    60 gm pissi rai (powdered mustard seeds)

    20 gm chilli powder or to taste

    60 gm salt

    180 gm sirka (vinegar)

    125 gm gur (jaggery)

    250 gm sarson ka tel (mustard oil)


Place the oil to heat in a large kadahi (or wok) and the vinegar and gur in a saucepan on another burner.

Bring the vinegar to a boil and then simmer to dissolve the gur.

When the oil is heated enough for a piece of vegetable thrown in to come up at once, keeping the heat on high, add the ginger and the garlic, and stir fry till a light brown.

Add the shalgam, gobhi and gajar and continue stirring over high heat. This has to be stirred long enough to evaporate the water in the vegetables.

You will know it is done, when the liquid in the vegetables gets back the colour of the oil.

Add the powdered spices and salt, mix well, again over high heat, and then add the vinegar solution. Let it come to a boil and shut off the heat.
