Gajar nu athanu is made with rai na kuria which is skinned split mustard seeds that gives this a sour, salty, spicy flavor! You can also use cauliflower, daikon or any other hard vegetable in this recipe! You can enjoy the pickled carrots a day after jarring them but the longer they sit in the fridge and ferment the tangy-er and better they get!
