We have been having this achar ever since I can remember. In our home daal chawal is not complete without this carrot achar. I love how simple this is to make and how healthy it is. Achar or pickle is such an important element to any South Asian meal. It's eaten at every meal. The tartness of the Achar or Pickle really compliments the Pakistani Indian flavors
