Achari Chicken Easy and Simple but Delicious Dish

Achari chicken is made with all the spices of pickle or achar. Achari chicken is a delicious dish which goes very well with roti, parathas or naan. Some of us like achari chicken with lots of spice and stuffed chilli. But personally I like this way. If you want more spice, use these spices (mustard, fennel, nigella, and fenugreek) 1 and half times more. If you want little bit tangy, use lemon juice.
