The very mention of achaar triggers a physical response — lips puckering at the recall of brine and teeth teetering on tanginess — but also a plethora of memories: of courtyards filled with a gaggle of women, exchanging gossip and news over heaps of raw mangoes, lemons, pickling vegetables, chillies, of running across the terrace as a child and slyly picking up a pale yellow slice, left out to dry. Pickles can liven up a meal of hot rice, steaming paranthas or just plain bread.. And if it is homemade with love without preservatives, even better!
