What is Achari Chicken Curry?
Achaar in Hindi (अचार) means pickle, and this curry takes on all the wonderful flavours associated with pickling - mustard, nigella, coriander and fenugreek seeds. There is an abundance of flavour created with the achari masala spice mix, a curry powder full of colour and flavour. This is the base of our flavour, but we have one more trick up our sleeve to elevate this curry sauce even further - Indian pickles.
Why it works
Stirring a couple of tablespoons of pickles at the end, add an amazing sour and spicy note to the sauce which gives us our distinctive flavour. It REALLY makes the most amazing difference. I use whatever Indian pickles I have in the fridge - this time I had a fiery mixed pickle which was intensely sour and spicy - you can use lime, mango or whatever Indian pickles you have.
