Choora Achar/Achaar is the Malayalam term for Tuna Pickles which is made from small cuts of fresh Tuna fish cooked with lots of spices, Vinegar, Salt, Red and Green peppers and Curry leaves (Please see related article on Achar/Achaar)
Choora is the Malayalam word for Tuna.
The pictures below show the fresh 2-kilo Tuna fish being prepared for making Choora Achar for me. Choora Achar is my most favorite Achar coming from Allepey, Kerala, India, not only because Tuna is fresh and delicious, but more so because it was cooked for me with love by my second family in Allepey. Grandmother cut the Choora, her special way and Aunt Lily and Gracy cooked it for me with TLC
I will never forget these three (3) wonderful cooks from Allepey.
