Achaar is an Indian-style condiment called a pickle, often made with garlic, limes, lemons, mangoes, ginger, eggplants, and other regional ingredients, but the decisive ingredient is the chili pepper.
Brooklyn Delhi's Tomato Achaar is made with locally-grown tomatoes, tamarind, a mix of Indian spices, red chili powder, unrefined cane sugar and sesame oil. It has a savoury, spicy and tangy flavour. Use it just like you would Sriracha or harissa.
Traditionally it's eaten with rice, curry, dal and yogurt, but you can top it on most anything - eggs, sandwiches, grilled meats, noodles or even cook with it by adding it to lentils, soups, salad dressings. Mix it into mayo for dipping fries in or into guacamole to go with chips.
Ingredients: tomatoes, non-GMO expeller pressed canola oil, sesame oil, salt, garlic, spices (including turmeric), tamarind, contains less than 1% of jaggery (evaporated sugarcane juice).

Richly textured, sweet, salty, and tart, just a smidgen of this spicy tomato achaar, which literally translates to tomato pickle, is enough to transform any dish." - Saveur Magazine
