Carrot and Cucumber Pickle

Carrots and cucumbers tossed in tangy and spicy mustard sauce.  No Gujarati meal is ever complete without this sweet and tangy variant. You can have them with your lunch, dinners or pack them for your lunch. The pickle does not last for several days, but you can always prepare it in advance.
