    755  Views

    Sorry not sorry but I’m one of those people who needs their pickle with every single meal. I could be eating anything but my meal would look incomplete without a spicy kick from some achaar but I hate draining out the oil (and all the flavour) in an effort to be kinda sorta healthy. Whether you don’t like oily pickles or just want a healthier alternative, read on for our oil-free faves. 

    PS- another awesome advantage of oil-free pickles no one thought of? It doesn’t get super messy and all over your food when it’s in your tiffin or lunchbox. You’re welcome.

    Nothing comes close to the OGs, this combo pack has a mango pickle and a lemon one. The lemon one’s sorta sweet sorta sour and the mango pickle (seedless, thank god!) is my go-to with an Aloo Ka Parantha.

    I used to feel shook when I’d see my older relatives literally pick up a green chilli and bite into it but as I grew older, I started loving mirchi achaars, too. This Hari Mirchi Achaar honestly feels homemade and they’re also totally organic.

    A lemon pickle that’s just sour, no watering down with sweet flavour profiles? I got you. This khatta nimbu achaar isn’t just oil free, it’s also sugar free and has no preservatives at all. Remember how your Nani or Dadi would make pickles at home? It feels just like it.

    Not a fan of pickles where you have to keep picking bits and pieces out? Your best option is to go for a chutney instead that you can dive into.

    A slightly different mango pickle, this one is a Hing Achaar so it’s not just a typical sweet pickle. The mango that goes into it is carefully picked so it’s super good quality and it’s 100% oil-free again while still tasting traditional and homemade.

    If you’re the type of person who reads a recipe’s recommended amount of garlic and decides to double (or triple) it, you need to try out this pickle. This Lehsun Achaar is full of garlic-y goodness (yes, that exists!) and it’s sort of spicy, natural and oil-free, and definitely yummy.

    Pro-Tip

    If you don't mind some oil in your pickles every once in a while, check out these homemade pickles. Can't really eat those achaars on their own, so get some Indian snacks to scoop up your pickle with!
