India loves pickles! Wouldn't you agree? We wait for the seasons to change so that we can use the seasonal veggies to make some lip-smacking pickles. In summers, we crave for mango pickles, whereas in winters, it is the gajar ka achaar that rules our tiffin box. From tangy to chilly and to sweet, we have pickles of all flavours for all times. Pickles are mostly served as an accompaniment but if given a chance, it can also shine bright as the star ingredient. Achaari preparations could be the show-stealer in your banal spread and it does not even take much time to make them.
