CRANBERRY GINGER CHUTNEY/CRANBERRY GINGER THOKKU/CRANBERRY ALLAM THOKKU with detailed photo and video recipe .Fall is cranberry harvesting season. This is the time of the year we can find bags of fresh cranberry in the grocery store aisles.
Fresh cranberries have a sour-tart flavor. They work as an excellent substitute for raw mangoes, tomatoes and tamarind in many Indian recipes.
I wanted to share few more interesting cranberry (Indian) recipes this year. I tried preparing popular Andhra Allam Pachadi/Ginger chutney by substituting tamarind with cranberries. It tasted delicious. The combination of cranberry and ginger was so tasty.
It was so easy to prepare. This sweet, spicy and tangy chutney makes a great accompaniment to Idlis, Dosas, Savory Pongal, Medu Vadas and especially Pesarattu/Moong dal Dosa/Moong sprouts Dosa.
This is the time of the year enjoy this lip smacking Cranberry Ginger Pickle. Winter is (almost) here. It’s almost the end of Fall/Autumn. We will not find cranberries until next fall season. Stock up during the fall harvest so you will have plenty for your favorite cranberry recipes.
Those of you who love ginger or like to include ginger in your diet, try this recipe. Though ginger plays the lead role in this pachadi, its flavor is not overpowering. The pungency of ginger is perfectly balanced with the sweetness of jaggery and tangy Cranberry.
This Cranberry Ginger Pickle is a must try, especially if you are a Chutney lover. The tartness of the fall harvest fruit is combined with the warmth of the wonderful winter spice and blended with roasted aromatic spices and jaggery. It is a delicious blend of flavors and ingredients!!!
