I love pickle, aka achar, so it’s no surprise that I love to make and eat this dish. Achari Chicken or Murgh Achari is a popular Indian curry recipe that mimics the flavours of a pickle by using the spices and flavours that go into pickling mangoes, carrots and other vegetables. But it’s not restricted to just vegetables, pickles can also include non vegetarian proteins like fish, shrimp or even beef!

There are many ways to make this recipe some use a store bought pickle masala powder and some add dollops of pickle into the gravy. My recipe is simple using whole spices that are easily available to make this delicious dish.
