Method

 
Dissolve the salt in the water and add the cauliflower, carrots and onions. Soak the vegetables in the mixture for at least 24 hours, drain well and rinse under running water. (The salt preserves the vegetables.) Heat the oil along with the chillies, garlic and masala. Mix the vegetables and oil and spoon into sterilised jars, ensuring the vegetables are covered with the oil mixture. Add extra hot oil if necessary. Cool and seal with sterilised lids. Store the pickles in the fridge. Makes 1 litre atchar.

Tip of the day

 
Baobab leaves
African cooks use leaves from the massive baobab tree to thicken their stews. Like okra, the leaves give the dish a congealing texture that's characteristic of West African stews. Okra will give a similar effect if you can't find baobab leaves.
