Make Your Own Delicious Mixed Pickle (Pachranga Achar) at Home with Moms Magic Pickle India

Mixed pickle, also known as “Pachranga Achar,” is a delightful medley of tangy, spicy, and savory flavors that perfectly complement any Indian meal. Made with a variety of vegetables and fruits like mango, amla (Indian gooseberry), lemon, carrot, ginger, and green chilli, mixed pickle is a beloved condiment in Indian cuisine. While store-bought pickles are convenient, there’s nothing quite like the satisfaction of making your own at home. In this article, we’ll share a simple yet flavorful recipe for making mixed pickle, along with an invitation to explore Mom’s Magic Pickle India’s range of pure homemade pickles available on our website.


  • 2 raw mangoes, peeled and cubed
  • 2 lemons, sliced
  • 2 amla (Indian gooseberry), sliced
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and cut into thin strips
  • 1-inch piece of ginger, peeled and julienned
  • 4-5 green chillies, slit lengthwise
  • 1 cup mustard oil
  • 4 tablespoons mustard seeds (rai)
  • 2 tablespoons fenugreek seeds (methi dana)
  • 2 tablespoons fennel seeds (saunf)
  • 2 tablespoons nigella seeds (kalonji)
  • 1 tablespoon turmeric powder (haldi)
  • 3 tablespoons salt, or to taste
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice


  1. Wash and prepare all the vegetables and fruits as mentioned in the ingredients list.
  2. Heat mustard oil in a pan until it reaches smoking point. Allow it to cool down slightly.
  3. Dry roast the mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds, fennel seeds, and nigella seeds in a separate pan until fragrant. Grind them into a coarse powder using a mortar and pestle or a spice grinder.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cubed mangoes, sliced lemons, amla, carrot strips, ginger juliennes, and slit green chillies.
  5. Add the ground spice mixture, turmeric powder, salt, and lemon juice to the bowl. Mix everything together until the vegetables and fruits are well coated with the spices.
  6. Transfer the mixed pickle mixture into a clean, dry glass jar.
  7. Pour the cooled mustard oil over the pickle mixture, ensuring that all the ingredients are submerged in the oil.
  8. Close the jar tightly with a lid and shake it gently to mix everything together.
  9. Place the jar in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and let it sit for at least 3-4 days to allow the flavors to meld together.
  10. Shake the jar gently every day to ensure that the spices are evenly distributed.
  11. Once the pickle has matured and the flavors have developed to your liking, it is ready to be enjoyed with your favorite Indian dishes.
  12. Remember, homemade pickles taste best when allowed to mature for a few weeks, so be patient and savor the anticipation!
