How can I eat Indian pickles?
Achaars are diverse yet homely, and all it takes is one finger-lick to transport you back home - to Ma’s handmade meals, and all the fond memories you have associated with them. Pickles are versatile, so they can be had with almost anything! While Mango Pickle is usually enjoyed with your dals and rotis, more regional achaars like Gobhi, Gajar, Shalgam are customarily eaten with specific dishes such as Missi ki Roti and Sarson ka Saag.
There’s no denying that these traditional combinations are absolutely, inarguably delicious, however, one jar of pickle has a lot more potential than we put to use. You can try some experimental recipes, some whacko combinations that will bring out the best in your dish. Adding sweet and sour pickles to the Mexican cuisine highlights the intricate flavours and pairing spicy bottles of achaar with Indian snacks like samosa and kachori, and even Western snacks such as falafel and pita bread, will add a new, interesting twist to your creation. And if you have people over, this little addition will keep your guests happy and comfortable with ghar ka khaana that tastes out of this world!
