Carrot Pickle - the instant variety

I found this on Just Homemade - and R had used some very colourful fresh carrots and the photographs were lovely and it seemed so easy.  For a change we had just seasoned curd rice for dinner and this seemed the right thing to make with it.  I used just one chili and maybe it could have just passed off as a tasty salad.  Call it what you will, but it is simple to make and tastes great.

Carrots / Gajar - 1 medium - for best results use tender baby carrots - in that case use 2-3 nos
Green chilies - 2 nos - slit lengthwise
Mustard powder - 1 tsp - (I used a mixture of mustard and fenugreek seeds) - it is recommended that you use the yellow mustard
Lime juice - 1 tsp
Olive oil - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Turmeric - pinch

Julienne the carrot
Add the rest of the ingredients.

As simple as that.
If it lasts beyond one meal. Put in bottle and refrigerate.  Said to last for 3-4 days.
