Recipe- Winter Special Gajar Ka Khatta Meetha Achar

Carrots are one of the most healthy vegetables that are loaded with beta-carotenes, anti oxidants and calcium.Apart from eating carrots as salads, I pack baby carrots with hummus for kids snack time. I use carrots a lot in my cooking. Add up in pulao and rice dishes(Tawa Pulao, Chinese Fried Rice), grate it in Idlis for and as stuffing, in paranthas for a colorful and healthy treat, soups, smoothies(Golden Smoothie for Winter with raw Turmeric), noodles for kids(Chowmein), muffins, in pasta dishes (Masala Macaroni) and everyone’s favourite Pav Bhaji and many more.
