We're Gorkhali Nepalis belonging to the Newar community, known for making great achaars. Achaar is a spicy condiment that accompanies our main meals, which involves a simple making process yet unique in itself. We can make achaars out of anything, or even with just three basic ingredients if there's nothing available around the kitchen. We use ingredients and recipes that have been passed down to me from four generations.

We will show you how a simple thing as this can be an art, a health necessity that is tasteful and soulful. I welcome you to take an insight into our socio-cultural life via this experience.

Itinerary

Once you arrive at our place, we will talk to you a little about achaars, how it is a part of our culture and the process of making it. We will let you taste some achaars to help you decide on which kinds of achaar you would like to try making and collect the ingredients that are required to make them.
Achaars are a spicy condiment, usually made of vegetables either as a preserved, fermented pickle or fresh, raw, tomato-based 'chutney' with some herbs. Almost every meal is accompanied with an achaar that is a home-based recipe passed down in the family. We will show you how to make three kinds of different 'achaar's and take you through every step slowly at your pace, whilst you try your hands on a portion yourself too. You are free to take home your bit of portion to relish later.
