Pickles (Achaar)

Pickle Recipes are a fundamental part of Indian cuisine. Pickle is also known as Achaar in hindi. It has a tart, tangy & spicy taste and can be paired with several Indian dishes like Indian Breads, Rice, Dals (Lentil Stew) and Vegetable Curries to enhance their taste.

Pickling is a process of preserving fresh food by immersion in salty water (brine), vinegar or vegetable oil. This improves the flavor, enhances the nutrition & makes it more digestible. Indian pickles or achaars are made from a variety of fruits & vegetables by mixing them with spices, salt and vegetable oils.
