Indian food can be very rich and it's always nice to have a refreshing pickle to cleanse the palate. These pickles are best made and eaten on the same day.

On the morning of the day the pickles will be served, julienne carrots and thinly slice onions (add a couple of whole green chilies too, if desired) and put them into a plastic bag. Toast cumin seeds in a dry pan - just til they are fragrant. Add the seeds along with brown mustard seeds, salt and white vinegar to the carrots and onions. Close the bag tightly and refrigerate til dinner time. Serve cold or at room temperature.
