We love achaar, don’t we? These tangy condiments can breathe life back into any regular Indian meal. In summers, it is the aam ka achar and in winters, it is the crunchy carrot achar; no matter the season, we have a pickle to match all our moods. Just imagine – tender chunks of mango that have been soaked in the spicy and sour masala for days, glistening with the oily brine sitting right in front of you. Tell us that you are not drooling already! While we may be addicted to the lip-smacking flavours of our favourite achaars, there is much more that this tangy mix can enhance. For instance, did you know that you can prepare a list of curries and dishes loaded with achaari flavours? Especially if you are a non-vegetarian food lover, brace yourselves, because turns out there is an utterly tempting achaari version of a mutton curry that you can make at home! It is called an Achaari mutton curry or Gosht Achaari.
