Pickles, known as achar or achaar in South Asia, are a compulsory accompaniment to Indian food. Pickles can be prepared with a variety of vegetables, fruits, and spices that are native to the Indian subcontinent, and they are preserved in oil, vinegar, or both.

This ginger and green chilli pickle will stay fresh for up to a couple of months, but you do not need to prepare large quantities, as green chillies and ginger are available year-round.

Do try this pickle and share your experience in the comments below.
