Dealer Joe’s Indian Model Garlic Achaar Sauce

Trader Joe's Indian Style Garlic Achaar Sauce

Why is Indian meals so scrumptious? I do not suppose I’ve ever had an Indian dish I did not like. My speculation: it is the spices and sauces.

This tasty new Dealer Joe’s model condiment lends credence to that principle. It is piquant, potent, and fabulously flavorsome. Nevertheless, I’ve to share the next: whereas re-familiarizing myself with achaar sauce through web search, I got here throughout one other common jarred garlic achaar sauce: Brooklyn Delhi. Initially, that is a freaking good play on phrases—not a Brooklyn deli like a delicatessen, however Delhi like the town in India. Ha! I adore it.

Anyway, I mused for a second about whether or not Brooklyn Delhi might presumably be Dealer Joe’s third celebration provider of their very own achaar. No sooner had the thought entered my thoughts after I stumbled throughout a tweet from the founding father of Brooklyn Delhi calling Dealer Joe’s providing a “low-cost, watered-down knock-off” of her model. 

All I’ve to say is DANG, woman, if these items is watered-down, then your roasted garlic achaar sauce have to be completely life-changing and I have to strive it as quickly as I can get my arms on some.


As a result of “watered-down” was the phrase farthest from my thoughts after I first tried this product. It is so wealthy and flavorful. It is tremendous garlicky, however there are additionally scorching chili spices and a deep, earthy chew that is so distinctive. We put it on naan bread with some eggs and garlic-flavored goat cheese. Fan-freaking-tastic. It is actually fairly noshable with nothing however bread—the eggs and cheese simply made it an entire meal.

This may go nice with hen, fish, shrimp, fries, appetizers…actually it is in all probability simpler to listing issues it would not go along with than issues it doubtlessly might. I would not strive it with desserts, I assume. It could destroy ice cream or cake, I suppose.


I am excited to experiment with it. $2.69 for the jar. It isn’t an enormous jar, however somewhat goes a good distance. 4 and a half stars from Sonia. 4 from me.
