How Achar is Made:

You can pick various vegetables or fruits to make achar such as mango, lemon, carrot or lasooda.


Here are the main processes involved in making achar at home.

  • First main ingredient (vegetable/fruit such as mango) is washed and completely dried. It is important to make it moisture free.
  • Then salt and turmeric powder are mixed with the fruit and kept overnight to marinate it well. After marination you will see fruit has released its inner water.
  • Water is drained. Dry the fruit chunks on an absorbent paper for whole night so the rest of the moisture is completely wiped out.
  • Then coriander seeds are heated in a pan until they release aroma. Then cooled and crushed partially.
  • In another large bowl, fruit chunks, some salt and spices are mixed together well.
  • Mixture will be stored tightly into a glass bottle and kept for nearly a day.
  • Oil is then heated in a pan until boiled. Then covered and cooled at room temperature. As it is cooled, it is added to the mixture.
  • Then it is left for around 3 weeks or until fruit absorbs the spices deeply.


Note: This is a general process of making achar; to make achar at home, please follow a particular achar recipe from the list given below.
