With a name that means “pickled” in Hindi, achaar is a staple Indian condiment that adds a fiery, tangy accent to any meal. New York-based company Brooklyn Delhi uses fresh, local produce in its award-winning achaars, which are prepared in small batches by founder and chef Chitra Agrawal.
Robust, savory-sweet Tomato Achaar features bright tomato fruit enhanced with tart tamarind, earthy garlic and nutty sesame oil, for a subtly spiced, well-rounded sauce with just the right amount of tang. The achaar's mild heat level and smooth consistency make it an easy, complexly flavored substitute for tomato paste in soups and sauces—if you don't use it all for dipping.
And even those averse to raw garlic will love Roasted Garlic Achaar, which showcases the caramelized, mellow qualities of roasted garlic. The sauce has spicy-sweet notes up front, followed by an aromatic lemony tang and lingering mustard pungency. We love Roasted Garlic Achaar whipped into mayonnaise and smeared on sandwiches, or use it as a softer alternative to minced garlic or shallot in salad dressings.
