Gajjar Beet ki Kaanji


BM # 4  Day 7
Kaanji is a very popular drink of north,which is made with powdered mustard seeds.

You  hear of kaali gajjar ki kanji….kaanji wadas ….this is nothing but sour water with a little spice n carrots.takes about 4days to get the right flavour..the kaali gajjar is a variety of carrots which is available in the north…since I love this drink….n cant get these carrots here I use beetroot to give that special color…..these pics have been taken on the second day,so the color is still light…as days pass by the water gets vibrant…a lovely purple color.u can drink a glass of this water after meals …helps digestion!
1big …………………carrot,peeled n sliced
1big …………………beetroot,peeled n sliced
¼ tsp…………………red chilly pwd
1tsp ………………….rai kuria(pwd mustard seeds)
Salt to taste
About 1 lt water




Add all the ingredients in a jar .mix well …leave it for 4 days….oh but plz shake u r jar now n then…in a rush to have it??…leave it in the sun for a while everyday..…may b u will save one day!!...the pickled carrot n the beetroot ripens in these 4 days too...so go ahead enjoy it!!
You could store this in frig after a week else the water gets really sour...
