Achari Aloo is a popular vegetarian dish from Indian cuisine, which translates to “pickled potatoes”. It is made with boiled or fried potatoes that are then tossed in a spicy and tangy mixture of pickling spices such as cumin seeds, mustard seeds, fennel seeds, coriander seeds, and nigella seeds along with ginger, garlic, onion, and tomato.
The pickling spices used in this dish give it a distinctive flavor that is sour, spicy, and slightly bitter all at the same time. The dish is relatively easy to make and is a great accompaniment to any Indian meal. It is also a popular street food snack in India and can be found in many food stalls and restaurants.
The dish is typically finished with a garnish of fresh coriander leaves and served with naan bread or steamed rice.
