The Hindi word achar translates as pickle, and traditionally this is a curry cooked with the spices left over after making a pickle.

Pickles are often flavoured with whole seeds including mustard, fennel, cumin and nigella and it’s these that give the curry it's interesting texture and nutty flavour. We’re serving it here with some crunchy homemade pooris, a fragrant rose and raisin chutney, a simple spinach dhal and a red bell pepper (Shimla mirch) raita.
