Fresh Farmer's Market Carrots Pickled

Pickled Carrots

Had a fabulous week last week at Stanford Graduate School Of Business, it's been a life changing experience. Met wonderful women from around the world with such energy,inspiration and the vibe was out of the world. I am so thankful to have gotten a chance to experience what I have experienced. One big take away for me was new friendships that I formed.

Well after that exciting week in Stanford its back to reality, getting ready for week ahead and usual chores. Sigh good things do come to an end after all.

With weather warming up farmers market was full of vibrant colors fruits and vegetables, freshly picked carrots had my name all over so picked up a bunch. Carrots were so tender, fresh and sweet that we finished half the bunch for an evening snack.

Today's recipe is my grandma's, she would make this with radish today substituted with carrot, uber simple yet very delicious.
2-3 fresh and tender carrots, sliced thinly
½ cup fresh lemon juice
2 tbs fresh ground pepper
1 thinly sliced green chili

tbsp on lemon rind.
Salt according to taste
Peel carrot and slice them thinly. 
Mix sliced carrot, chilies,lemon rind add lemon juice, pepper, salt , green chilies.
Allow carrots to marinate for about half an hour, the more the marination the better the taste.

Pickled carrots can be eaten as is or tastes excellent with roti's and naan as sides, carrots can be substituted with radish,onions or mango.

Wishing everyone a happy week ahead, I for sure need lots of energy to get through :)
