PICKLE MASALA / ACHAR MASALA / ATHANA NO MASALO

Pickle Masala – Achar Masala- Athana No Masalo, is a relatively easy recipe to make.

Now that the summers are in and the mango season is here it is a very convenient recipe to make for the pickles. Especially the fresh ones, which can be consumed in a day or two or within a week’s time.

I had always used ready-made achar/pickles but the taste was never consistent. My mother is Gujarati and she used to make Pickle Masala – Achar Masala- Athana No Masalo at home. I simply loved it so decided to learn it from her who in turn had learnt it from my baa (Nani/granny).  Now I keep experimenting with this Pickle Masala / Achar Masala / Athana No Masalo and keep inventing varieties in my achars. I have tried it with-chilli (red & green), amla, mango and carrot.

Different Achar spices ingredients are involved in this masala like Methi Kuria (Split Fenugreek), Rai Kuria (Split Mustard Seeds), Kashmiri chilli powder, Salt, Asafoetida, Mustard Oil, and Fennel seed.
