    Default Achar recipe anyone?

    Hi,

    Can someone teach me how to make achar? I am referring to the spicy kind with cucumber, pineapple and carrot, and maybe peanut or sesame?

    Have not had that for a while, and miss it a lot. No chance to go back to SG soon, so can only resort to DIY....

    Thanks!

    - Roy
