What is Achar?

Achar is a fermented catch-all pickled condiment popular in South-Asian cuisine made using fruits or vegetables pickled in oil, lemon juice/vinegar, and spices.

Fermenting and pickling food is a tradition passed down from generation to generation in many different cultures and traditions across the world. It's a unique method of preserving food, while enhancing its taste and probiotic health benefits. 

What Does Achar Taste Like?

Achars instantaneously add seasoning and complexity, taking your meals to the next level. Achar flavours are complex and differ based on the recipes used. Depending on the type of achar, it can add a sweet, tangy, salty, spicy, and full-bodied fermented flavourto your meals. The flavour will also vary depending on the fruits or vegetables used, the length of fermentation, and the amount of salt, vinegar, or sweetener used. 

Since achar/pickle is a fermented dish, its most prominent flavour note is typically sour. Lactic acid produced by bacteria during fermentation creates a tangy, pungent flavour similar to that of kimchi or sauerkraut. Freshly grounded spices added to the achar intensifies in taste during fermentation. Achar is also known to be spicy depending on how much chili peppers are used.

But be warned, once your taste buds are vivified with the gratifying flavour of achar, you may never be able to eat a stand alone meal again! 

What do you pair Nani's Achar with?

Achar, also known as pickles can be eaten on its own as a side dish, or appetizer, or paired with various types of rice, stews, daal/lentil, and rotis. It also tastes great on sandwiches, burgers, hot dogs, cheese & crackers, eggs, nachos, pizza, and grilled meats/veggies.

Simply put, achar is the South-Asian answer to hot sauce and kimchi! It is a catchall condiment that you can put on literally anything and it will taste great!

Why are achars (pickles) good for you?

Achar, being fermented, is a source of probiotics and is good for gut health. Traditionally made pickles (achars) which are allowed to ferment allow the growth of beneficial bacteria, known as probiotics. The probiotics produced as a result of fermentation helps balance the good bacteria in your gut, which in turn may help reduce digestive issues. Fermenting foods allows the nutrients to break down, which in turn makes it easier to digest, compared to unfermented foods. Furthermore, eating fermented foods which are rich in probiotics, such as achars, kimchi, sauerkraut, can boost your immunity and help you recover faster if you’re sick. 

Store-bought pickles and achars imported from overseas are full of preservatives such as iodine, citric acid, anti-caking agents, potassium iodide and sodium benzoate.

Nani's Achar is 100% naturally fermented, and does not contain any artificial flavours, colours or preservatives.
