Murraba or murrabo is a savoury pickle or achar originating in the Gujarat region of India. It is traditional sweet, prepared with carrots (or with raw mangoes), sugar, and spices, and resembles a fruit preserve, such as apricot conserve or orange marmalade, more than the hot oily pickles associated with Indian Cuisine.
