The regional terms for pickles vary with language all over the subcontinent. The term for pickles in Hindi, Urdu, Assamese, Bengali, and Punjabi is “Achaar”. The names for specific pickles can generally be obtained by prefixing the name of the main ingredient to achaar, such as Nimbu ka achaar (lemon achaar), Aam ka achaar (Mango pickle), and chili pickle (Mirch ka achar). Mixed pickle is made by mixing various vegetables and fruits. Now a day these are commercially available.
