Savor the love in our latest limited batch pickle: Tomato Lonsa Pickles!
Produced in collaboration with Philly-centric, family-owned business, AAJI's, our Tomato Lonsa Pickles feature a soft curry and tomato-forward flavor with fresh carrots and celeriac (also, known as celery root). The vegetables offer a firm, snappy crunch that pairs so beautifully with the rich umami taste of the brine and the mild mustard notes from spices.
What is Lonsa? Lonsa is a traditional Coastal Indian, tomato-based condiment used as a spread or topping to create flavorful dishes. AAJI's lonsa is adapted from matriarch Vijoo Korde's recipe and uses a distinct blend of spices to create a unique balance of sweet, savory, spicy, tart and umami flavors. Versatile and delicious, AAJI's Lonsa is produced to deliciously uplift any meal. Local peeps, can get their hands on AAJI's lonsa at farmer's markets and some grocers.
If you're like us, it will be hard to put this one down. Enjoy this on it's own, on a sandwich (Banh Mi, anyone??) or with a chicken or tofu curry.

Although I love celery root and carrots, I’m not a fan of this recipe. All I can taste is sugar. I don’t taste tomatoes or either of the vegetables. Literally it’s so sweet, I can even eat them. When I buy a pickled product, I want a salty, garlicky, vinegary snack, not a dessert. I really wish they’d do the celery root and carrot mix in an actual pickling.
Hands down the best pickles I’ve ever tasted! Each different type surpasses the next. The flavors and just unique enough to set it apart from anything I’ve ever tasted! The new Tomato Lonsa Pickles are like a party in your mouth. The balance between sweet and savory is just right. The special spice mixture and crunch keeps you wanting more!
We love getting the Aaji’s lonsa and when we saw the collab with our favorite pickles, we couldn’t resist buying at the Media farmers market. These are sooo good and probably one of my favorite offerings from all the different pickles I’ve had! The flavors lend themselves well to the carrots and celeriac. Looking forward to purchasing more!
