The Shan achar masala is a spice mix that you may use to prepare a condiment that includes mangoes and vegetables. The art of South Asian pickling is often considered somewhat tricky due to the numerous herbs and spices involved. Getting the balance right is essential and the Shan achar masala allows you to accurately recreate the taste without having to measure out quantities for every ingredient. There are two recipes for the condiment written on the Shan achar masala box, the first is simple and quick while the other is a traditional method that requires somewhat more time.
