photo of the week: “pickles anyone?” – varanasi, india

The Featured City This Month: Varanasi, India

Achar

 

Varanasi locals love to eat anything pickled. Achar refers to anything that is pickled – onions, tomato, garlic, mango, green mango and about anything else they can get their hands on. You will see these jars in shops all over Varanasi….it doesn’t look very appetizing but you’ll find a little garnish of achar on most plates served in Indian restaurants and in everyone’s home. It’s tangy and sour…definitely makes you pucker your lips!
