Raita / Chtutney / Achar recipes
Accompaniments like raitas, chutneys and achar add more punch to any meal, transforming even simple dishes into a memorable meal. Even on days when you do not feel hungry at all, these refreshing and flavour-packed accompaniments prod you to eat some – and then some more! Add more zest to snacks and meals with accompaniments like Palak Raita, pickles like Aam ka Achaar and chutneys like the Green Chutney.
This smashingly tasty Palak Raita will steal your heart with its simple yet rustic flavour. The contrast of dark green against the light colour of curds is a treat to behold too.
Sun-dried mangoes used in this pickle impart a salty chewy character and also improve the shelf life of the pickle. Aam ka Achaar is a very simple recipe to follow. Just keep in mind the basics of pickle making a clean sterilized jar, see that there is no moisture and ensure that mustard oil forms a covering layer over the ingredients in the jar.
