RECIPE: How is the pickle prepared?
The process of preparation begins with the raw amras arriving to our kitchen factory.
We separate out the most mature amras because their pulp and seeds are too tight. Therefore, it’s important to buy the fruit at the right stage in its life.
Because amra is rare, tangy, wild fruit that itself is loved across these parts – the pickling of this pickle is rather simple. You’ll often see people sitting on their terraces and enjoying this fruit with black salt on rainy afternoons in this part of the country.
Once the amra’s arrive, they are cleaned with a couple of rounds of water. And left outside to dry for a couple of hours.
The fruit, which is similar is size to a strawberry, is cut into two parts. They are put together in a mixing vessel and the marinating spices – salt & turmeric – are added. This mix is left untouched for 12 hours so that the extra moisture within the amra comes out.
Finally, we add the masalas to this marinated amras and the pickle is ready for sun-drying.
This fruit is a delicate fruit, and is prepared easily under the sun within 7-10 days of good sunlight.
Even in Mithila, it’s very difficult to get this fruit. As it mostly grows in the wild. And hence the pickle is cherished a slightly more 😉

Pickle is very tasty
No doubt आपके बनाएं तीनों अचार स्पेशल mango, आम्र और जिमिकंद बहुत ही ज्यादा yummy😋 हैं । मैंने तीनों एकसाथ खोल लिए , रहा ही नहीं गया taste किए बिना । लगा एक घर से दूसरे घर में प्यार से भेजा गया है । बिल्कुल नानी दादी बनाती थी एकदम वैसा । पहली बार मैंने बिहारी अचार खाया । आपको बहुत बहुत धन्यवाद । I became biig fan of ur preparation. Definately mei apne friends circle में recommend करूंगी । Thank u so much दोनों को ।
Thanks. Today I received my pickle. It is delicious. Nice packing. I wanted to buy bharwa aam but It is not available. I suggest you to have teet and kathal also. All the best. ❤👍
Thank you for the feedback, and suggestions, Amita Ji.
We have Kathal achar launching later this month. Will keep you posted.
Very authentic bihari taste. Loved it.
Awesome taste .
Amda content in the pickle is not edible. Once opened, you will find top 1 or two hog plum( amda ) are soft ,rest all are ripened. They are hard like stone. Do not buy.
I understand your frustration. We'll get the batch from which your jar was sent checked.
In the meanwhile, please allow us to send you a complimentary jar. I will make sure the amra is soft, and edible.

Amra and mithila special are really superb. Suran achar contains lot of ginger. Please try to pick young and small amra. Larger ones are difficult to suck. Small ones amra u can eat and suck completely, very tasty

Amra ka achar is good, tasty. Infact mujhe meri Fua (Bua) ki yaad aa gai ye kha kay. Very soft, good mix of masalas, and tasty.
