We love adding some spicy spin to our regular meal once in a while. It is when a jar of fiery and flavourful mirchi ka achar comes to the rescue. Green or red chilli coated with a pool of aromatic spices, mirchi ka achar spells indulgence for every spice lover. You may pair it with your favourite stuffed paratha, roti-sabzi or a humble plate of dal-chawal – mirchi ka achar adds that extra zing to any meal. Hence, you will always find at least one jar of mirchi ka achar stored in every Indian kitchen; however, the taste and recipe of the achar may vary from place to place. While some like it dunked in spicy masala gravy, others enjoy having the chilli stuffed with spices in it. In fact, the combination of spices used in an achar recipe is also unique to each palate, which means, one gets enough room to experiment with an achar recipe.
Here, we found a bharwan (stuffed) mirchi ka achar recipe that not only is made in very little oil but can also be stored for one whole year! So, prepare a jar of stuffed mirchi ka achar with this super simple recipe and stash in your pantry for whenever you need them.
