Instant Achar!!

Shortage of time and need for better can make you stumble upon best of the things on earth.

These past few days after i've resolved to cook dinners at home and out of respect for my body not just munch and gulp the street food i love so much, as  dinner.

And so starts the journey of whipping up something nice almost every evening with my awesome roomies, and since we are from diverse regional backgrounds, i get to discover wonderful recipes like this one:


  • Raw mango
  • Cooking oil
  • Mustard seeds
  • Sugar n Salt
  • Turmeric powder 
  • Red chilli powder
  • An Awesome roommate that gushes with pride and encouragement when you  try anything new :)

  • Pretend that you are a masterchef contestant to summon the confidence.
  • Cut up the raw mango into small pieces as shown in the picture.
  • Heat the cooking oil (about  2 teaspoons) and add mustard seeds.
  • They must make a crackling sound. If they don't, wait and egg them on until they do.
  • Add your superbly cut raw mango to the mix. Expect more crackling sound
  • Stir, stir, stir. 
  •  Add a spoonful of sugar. The crystals look beautiful on top before they melt.
  • Stir a bit and turn off the flame.

So here's the thing that can instantly improve your dinner of boring khichdi or dal chawal. :)

It was tangy delicious. Definitely worth trying!!
