This is a fatafat (super quick) pickle you can rustle up to serve with cheese or shaak parotha. It’s also rather nice in a Brie sandwich and according to my Tone it is amazing with grilled chicken.


  • 100 g carrots
  • 10 green chillies
  • 2 tbsp


Wash and peel the carrots and cut them into 7 cm sticks. Slice the green chillies lengthways and put both into a bowl with the lemon juice, turmeric, salt and split mustard seeds. Toss together well.

In a small frying pan, heat the oil for a few minutes and then add the black mustard seeds. Let them fizzle and pop and then pour them over the carrot mixture. Toss together well and serve.
