Instead of sprinkling the ingredients over chopped veggies. You can mix them in a separate bowl, with flour and water, and make a paste of it. Then add with chopped vegetables.
I have used all-purpose flour, you can also use cornstarch.
Make sure, that you store your pickles in a cool, dry, dark place.
I have used cauliflower, you can skip it.
