About Brooklyn Delhi

We make delicious condiments and sauces inspired by Indian culinary traditions. Our first line of products that we launched in 2014 focuses on an Indian pantry staple called achaar, sometimes referred to as Indian pickle. Achaar (pronounced ah-char; ‘pickled’ in Hindi) is a flavor-packed condiment made from vegetables & fruits, aromatic spices and chili peppers – think of it as India’s equivalent to Sriracha but with a more complex flavor and without all the sugar. Add a little bit to whatever you’re eating to give it a spicy, sour, sweet and savory kick! Traditionally, achaar is eaten with rice, dal, curry or yogurt, but our recipe is super versatile and also pairs well on sandwiches, burgers, eggs, mixed into bowls, soups or noodles, with cheese & crackers, etc.

Our first cookbook, Vibrant India: Fresh Vegetarian Recipes From Bangalore to Brooklyn (Penguin Random House, March 2017) is now on sale! For the last three years, I poured my heart and soul into this book which focuses on my family’s vegetarian recipes from Bangalore in South India. I have worked hard to adapt recipes for the home cook using fresh ingredients and local produce available in the US. I tell the story of how I brought these recipes to life thousands of miles away in Brooklyn at my cooking classes, pop-up dinners, Brooklyn Delhi and on my blog.
