Shalgam ka Achar (Turnip Pickle)

shalgam ka achar

I find shalgam ka achar very tasty and as an accompaniment to my meals. In fact many people spruce up their meals with pickle. I follow my mom's recipe and it works out fine. You can also make gajar shalgam ka achar by adding gajar pieces and adjusting the salt and spice level accordingly.
Recipe of shalgam ka achar
1/2 kg shalgam (turnip)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp rai (small mustard seeds) - grounded
1 tsp saunf (fennel) powder
4 tbsp mustard oil
1. Peel and wash shalgam. Let them dry naturally in air.
2. Cut shalgam into pieces.
3. Mix together salt and all the spices. Mix them with shalgam pieces.
4. Pour mustard oil over shalgam pieces.
5. Store turnip pickle in an airtight bottle and keep aside for few days.
Note- It takes about 2 days in summers and 4-5 days in winters for the shalgam ka achar to be fit to consume.
