Cranberry spinach chutney with detailed step by step photos and video : This easy cranberry spinach chutney recipe has flavors of spinach and warm spices. This chunky and bright green spicy chutney is loaded with cranberries, spinach and south Indian spices.
The lovely green color from spinach leaves makes this chutney pleasing to the eye and sour taste from cranberry . These both conbination will be very good taste and healthy . As indian we always love spicy chutney, i have added south indian spices what we will regularly use in any chutney.
This chutney just look and taste like Gongura chutney(Sorrel leaves chutney). As a south indian i love Gongura chutney a lot. After came to America. Here we can’t get good sorrel leaves. In place of sorrel leaves, i will make cranberries palak chutney . But i can make this only the sesason when cranberries are available fresh. We can also make with canned cranberries too. But i love to make with fresh.
In india, in some places we are getting these cranberries. If you are not able to find cranberries, we can also use Carissa carandas (vakkaya).
Fresh cranberries are in season for such a short time, which makes them all the more special. Quick tip: fresh cranberries freeze very well so grab an extra bag at the store. I add them to smoothies all the time as they are very high in antioxidants.
Health benifits of carnberries
Cranberries contain high levels of antioxidants and per Dr. Mercola, research bears out that cranberries also protect against cancer, particularly breast cancer, due in part to potent antioxidant polyphenols. One serving of cranberries also provides 24% of the daily value (DV) in vitamin C, along with vitamin E (alpha tocopherol), the only form of this powerful antioxidant actively maintained in the human body.
