I have created my own easier version of it.  Mine is nowhere close to my mom's, but it is OK.  I adjust things according to my taste, but the ingredients and method of making is similar to below. 

200 gm cauliflower (chopped)
200 gm carrot (chopped)
200 gm turnip (shalgam)
10 green chillies cut into halves
50 gm garlic (crushed)
50 gm crushed ginger
2 tbsp ground mustard seeds
2 tbsp mustard oil
2 tsp salt
2 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp garam masala
A pinch of asafoetida (heeng)
3 tsp jaggery/brown sugar
2 tbsp tamarind (imli paste)
cup vinegar

Wash, peel and cut vegetables. In a microwave safe bowl, steam all vegetables in 1/2 cup water for 3-4 minutes. Take the vegetables out and let them air dry on paper towels.
In another microwave safe bowl, add oil and microwave at 100% power for 30 seconds.
Add crushed garlic, ginger, salt and turmeric.Microwave at 100% power for 2 minutes.
Add the rest except vegetables and microwave for 2 minutes. Stir in between.
Add microwaved vegetables and microwave for 2 minutes at 100 % power. Store in air tight jar when cool.  Enjoy.

Awesome! Thanks Aris! Judging from the ingredients it is the kind of pickle Johan would just love! Am defo going to try this one out! Cool

hai mein sadke jawa  what a memory zee  thats what i did when i was living in pakistan  as a teenager  beautiful memory last for a lifetime .. dont know why i always have mango achar  yum yum
i had kerela achar once in pakistan  tasted real good LOL
LOL
It is quite a memory, I think it is one of my earliest all the way from Jhelum in PakistanBig smile.
Mum used to spend days preparing the main ingredients, mixing them with salt for a day or so, then washing them, preparing the oil and then keeping an eye on them for days turning each bottle upside down to make sure that the mixing took place without so much as a utensil being used.  I don't know if that is a quirk or actually done!  I still expect her to be sitting on the sofa, when I get home, either preparing for pickle or lost under a mound of spinich which she would be chopping.Smile

Xarina, I have similar memories of my mom in IndiaBig smile.  Actually, that trick of turning the bottles upside done is quite common.  This makes sure that all the juices created by the ingredients and the oil reaches equally to the top and the bottom vegetables and they kind of marinade equally.  You need to keep the container air tight as long as possible and opening them early to stir the ingredients lets the air in which may spoil the achar.
You learn something new everyday.   Thanks Aris.Big smile

Adjust the ingredients according to your taste and you can use whatever you have on hand.  I have used olive oil instead of mustard oil.  Last time, I made it I omitted the oil altogether to make it light, but then you have to store it in the refrigerator.  Let me know how it turns out.

Christine, you need to visit an Indian/Pakistani grocery storeLOL.  You will find shelves full of pickles.  You will be confused as to which one to pick.

I will.   It's just moments like those are bittersweet.  We used to tell her all the time to stop.  sorry for being maudling.  I will stop henceforth.   I have a happy face now.Big smile
