Tindora Pickle (Athanu or achar)

I’ll admit that I cheat when making pickles (athanu or achar) by buying the spice mix from the Indian store.  There are usually two types- sweet and spicy.  I buy the bright red spicy one.  Assuming you use the ready-made mix, pickles are fairly easy to make.  Tindora is one of my favorite ones (after green mango).  Sometimes, I end up eating just plain rice and the tindora athanu for dinner!  I don’t make huge batches of this because I’m not sure how long it stays good.  I usually don’t keep it more than 10 days in the fridge.


1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp spicy Indian pickle mix (also called achar masala)
1/4 tsp salt
~25 tindora, cut into thin slices


1.  Mix everything together in a bowl.  Fill in glass bottle and store in fridge until ready to eat.
