We bloggers often get opportunities to collaborate with various brands and companies. It’s been two years almost i have been working for various reputed brands in India as a stylist, photographer and reviewer, but not always the brands or the product impress me. But then comes a brand who surprises you with their products and impress you to the core. One such amazing collaboration that happened to me in December 2017 is of CIBA GROUP / CIBA MASALA UDYOG. The company basically works as a spice company named CIBA TAAZA SPICES. Initially i thought it’s just another spice brand until unless i was send 2 big cartons of spices. lentils and legumes. Appointed as stylist, photographer, graphic designer and a reviewer, Ciba Taaza Spices happens to be my career’s most important and big project by far. A year long running project that gives me an opportunity to do something i’m good at…yes,cooking! and trying out their amazing spice blends that comes in both vegetarian and non vegetarian versions.

A quick look to the easy method : Cut vegetables in similar size, was and keep aside. Boil around 2-3 cups of water in a pan and add 1 tbsp salt in it. Now add the cut vegetables and par boil them. Strain water and collect the par boiled veggies in a flat base tray or plate and let them cool. Spread a kitchen towel or a clean cloth on the kitchen counter and spread the par boiled vegetables on it so that the excess moisture gets absorbed. Now collect the vegetables in a broad base bowl and place under the sun for around 7-8 hours. Do this for 2 days. On the third day, add mustard oil and Ciba Taaza Achar Masala mix into the vegetables and mix nicely. Adjust salt if needed and transfer the pickle into pickle jars and closely tighten the lids. Now let the pickle rest for another day and then you can consume it with your daily meals.
