Rachel's Carrot Ginger Cauliflower Pickle

Recipe By:

Rachel Gurjar

Serves: 4-6

This has been a pantry staple in my fridge for years. I often switch up the vegetables to something that is in season like beets or radish. Traditionally raw mango powder or amchur is added for acidity, but since they're not as readily available in New York, I used white vinegar for brightness. Using robust vegetables like carrots and cauliflower will make sure the pickles stay crunchy for at least two to three weeks. Also, using a fine ground chili powder will help emulsify the spices into the oil and vinegar, so use the finest you've got! I hope you'll make it and love it as much as I do! - Rachel
