Almost every Indian meal needs to have a pickle in it. The main motive for preparing different pickles is preserving seasonal fruits and vegetables to enjoy them throughout the year. Indian pickles are popular worldwide, and their tangy spicy taste is even enjoyed with non-Indian dishes. Let’s discover some authentic Indian pickles you can try this chilly season.
One can barely imagine an Indian meal without achaar (authentic Indian pickle) on the side. For most of the summertime in India, everyone in an Indian household is seen busy with pickle preparation. Right from washing vegetables and fruits and adding popular condiments to taking ceramic jars, everyone enjoys the process.
For Indians and now many global citizens, pickles are not just food but an emotion.
History of Indian pickles
Pickles have a long history and are seen in all cultures. The earliest firm examples are pickled cucumbers found around 2030 BC in Mesopotamia when habitats from northern India traveled with cucumber seeds to the Tigris valley.
Pickles in winter
Pickles are often made in the summer season and can be greatly enjoyed throughout the year. One of the varieties of seasonal pickles suitable for winter is mustard fermented pickles, where many vegetables and fruits are preserved in oil and Indian masalas. Authentic Indian pickles and traditional winter dishes taste amazing when paired with them.
