Pineko golbheda ko achar (tomato achar)

This recipe is inspired by my grand ma. I remember her making this almost every time we visited her and it used to be my favourite. It is an easy, quick and delicious achar.


  • 5 small tomatoes
  • 4 dry red chillies (use more or less according to taste)
  • 3 cloves of garlic peeled and halved
  • Salt to taste


  • Roast tomatoes over the fire until it is cooked.
  • achar (1)Roast red chill over fire but be careful not to burn it.
  • Take the black skin off the roasted tomatoes.
  • Grind salt, roasted chilli and fresh garlic cloves using mortar and pestel until you get a paste.

  3. probably the bestttt achar everrrrrrr. I agree with alishadhi – i think timmur goes very well here 🙂 also, if you dont have gas stove, using broiler to get that charred on tomatoes works really well too.
