Achari Rice is a delicious Indian dish that gives regular rice a delicious makeover.

It combines fragrant basmati rice with spices, veggies like sweet corn and green peas, and the star of the show, mixed pickle (achar).

This dish is all about bold flavors with a hint of tanginess, making it a delightful addition to your meal.

  • Heat the olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat.
