Gobhi Gajar Shalgam Ka Achaar Recipe: How To Make Gobhi Gajar Shalgam Ka Achaar
First, heat oil in a large kadai. In a separate saucepan, add vinegar and gur. Bring the vinegar to a boil and then allow it to simmer until the gur dissolves. Add ginger and garlic and stir fry until it becomes light brown. Add the shalgam, gobhi and gajar and continue stirring over high flame. (This has to be stirred long enough to evaporate the water in the vegetables.) You will know it's done, once the liquid in the vegetables gets back the colour of the oil. Add the powdered spices and salt. Mix well. Add the vinegar solution and let it come to a boil. Gobhi gajar shalgam ka achaar is ready!
