Here comes pickles season…..the markets are flooded with huge green kairis that are bound to make your mouth water!!! Had gone shopping a few days back and picked up a packet of pickle masala just on a whim…guess just looking at those yummilicious kairis made me want to pick it up…Anyway, now that I had the masala I had to use it. Making mango pickle is really time consuming and needs accuracy and time is something I am lacking right now with all the guest dropping over and my kiddo vacays and so on and so forth!!!



  1. Remove the juice of the lemons. Marinate the fish pieces in the lemon juice, pickle masala, ginger garlic paste, haldi powder and salt and leave them for atleast an hour.
  2. Mix the besan and maida. Do not add water. Take the marinated fish pieces and roll them in the besan, maida mixture till evenly coated.
  3. Shallow fry in oil on a skillet or non stick tawa on low heat till crisp and evenly browned.
  4. If you have some left over marinade just toss in the remaining besan and maida. Add a little water to make a thick batter. Now dip the potato roundel in it and pan fry them on low heat. Serve the achari fish tikka with crisp white onions.

Hi! I am Sonali, mom to a fast growing teenager and a homemaker.I love to cook, read and travel ( and in that order). I believe that travel keeps the cook ever so innovative. Each time I travel, I scourge the market places and eateries for some new ingredient or recipies. I believe that every type of cuisine has its own story to relate……One that’s fascinating.Being born and brought up in Mumbai which is often called “a melting pot of culinary delights” helped me explore and experiment with a wide range of cuisines.So come share with me the tang of lime, the bite of chilli, the fresh herbs, the crunch of raw veggies and experience the wide spectrum of textures and sharp flavours of different cusines.
