Achari curry is made with all the spices of pickle or achar/pickle. Achari chicken is a delicious dish which goes very well with roti, parathas or naan. Some of us like achari chicken with lots of spice and stuffed chilli. But personally I like this way. Some of us can easy to easy to add oil from achar (Pickle). If you want more spice, use these spices (mustard, fennel, nigella, and fenugreek) 1 and half times more. If you want little bit sour, use lemon juice.


• 1 curry cut chicken(10 size)

• 1 large sliced onion

• 1 teaspoon chilli powder

• ½ teaspoon fennel seeds

• ½ teaspoon nigella seeds

• ½ teaspoon fenugreek seeds

• ½ teaspoon cumin seeds

This looks delicious! I’ve never had achari curry, but it sounds amazing, especially with some naan!


This recipe is very unique. I like the idea of putting pickle on meats. I must confess my mind set to Bangladeshi Foods changed once I saw you recipe site. Go Ahead Bangladesh.

Loved the achari recipe look forward to more of the same quality!


Hi apu,

I just found your website and I am excited to try your recipes. I have one question.. I do not recognize some of the spices, and in the USA they are not easy to find in regular stores. So could you please let me know the Bangla names for them so that I can look in desi restaurants? I have no idea what nigella, fenugreek, fennel are..



If I use panch phoron instead of the separate spices (nigella, fenugreek, fennel, cumin), what amount should I use? 2 teaspoons?
