Hey, thanks so much. I didn't hear this word. I must have read it on the forum before because I can recognize it. I must ask somebody who knows Sindhi.^ sandhānā might be the word you're thinking of. It means pickled vegetables/fruits and is therefore the same in meaning as achār. I personally don't say sandhānā so I'm not quite sure if there is any difference in subtlety. This word is used in Hindi and presumably Urdu too. Cognates with the same meaning cited by Turner include: sã̄dhāṇo (Sindhi), saṁdhāna (Old Awadhi), and sãdhāṇũ (Gujarati).
