  • Heat the vinegar together with the sugar and salt in a saucepan until the sugar has dissolved.
  • Peel the carrots and slice as thinly as possible. Cut the red onions into thin, half rings. Peel the ginger and cut into small pieces. Crush the lemongrass and cut into pieces.
  • Put the carrots, onion, ginger, and lemongrass together with the coriander seeds and chilli flakes in the preserving jar. Then pour the vinegar over this. If necessary, top up the jar with water until all the vegetables are submerged.
  • Let cool with the lid loosely on and then close the lid. Place in the fridge. You can keep the pickle for about a week. And there you go, your pickled carrots are ready to be served.
