Cranberry Chutney/Pachadi

Cranburry chutney

Hi Buddies,

I’m very excited to share my new recipe with you all. I never bought cranberries before and got it for the first time for this bhogi festival (as i couldn’t find regi pallu).I wanted to try something new with the left over cranberries and recollected the cranberry chutney that we ordered for our housewarming party a year back.We liked that chutney so much that I tried different versions with the flavors I remember and finally succeeded 🙂 . This is very simple to make and healthy too (when compared to other pickles). Try this different recipe for sure!
