The tongue-twisting pickle



The image above is a typical Indian kitchenware especially in South India.

These ceramic jars are used to store PICKLES like mango, lemon, amla and other varieties of pickles.

A lid with knob sits inside the wide neck of the jar covering it totally.

The pickles stored in the jar are never spoilt.


Pickles known as ‘Achar’ (Hindi) in India is an essential component in Indian Cuisine.

In India meals are not considered complete without pickles. (Lifeline of Indian Cuisine)

Each Indian family, I am sure has a minimum of 2 to 3 types of pickles stored in jars

Besides Cricket, Pickle is one common thread that unites India with its extraordinary flavours.

Have ever eaten Indian pickles?

If not just try at a local Indian stores.

How did it taste?

I am sure your tongue must have twisted!😋

They are tangy, salty, spicy and mouthwatering.

It’s a condiment predominantly salty. Varieties also include sweet and sour.

Pickle have immense health benefits and I am not going into the details.

“It’s not a bottle of pickle, it’s home packed in a jar” Jay

India is a diverse country in terms of eating customs, traditions and culture.

Sadly people make fun of other cultures and traditions

Think twice before you feel so and so culture is ‘weird’

Don’t get intimidated by culture shock!


“All cultures have things to learn from all other cultures.

Don’t get stuck in your culture!

Go beyond it! Get out of your aquarium;

Get out of your farm;

Get out of your castle; break your bell jar!

Give chance to other cultures and to other opinions!

This is the best way for you to see the insufficiencies, absurdities and stupidities in your culture!”
