Collection of Indian style Pickle Recipes / Achaar Recipes, I have compiled a list of 6 non veg pickle and 12 veg pickle recipes (Indian style Pickle Recipes) shared over a period of time in my blog.
Summer is all about making sun dried pickle recipes in India. The most popular ones are made using raw mango and lemon. Pickle are served as a side for roti and cooked rice. For south Indians, curd rice is never complete without pickle / oorugai. Typing oorugai makes my mouth watery 🙂
To store pickle, you need a clean bottle or ceramic pickle jar. If prepared properly, any pickle will last up to 6 months to 1 year. For north indian style pickles, mustard oil is preferred, whereas, for south indian style pickles, gingelly oil / nalla ennai or groundnut oil is preferred. Always use cold pressed oils for pickles and also for regular cooking. I hope you find this list useful. I shall keep updating the list with new indian style pickle recipes. If you try any of my recipes, do share your feedback with us.
