Cranberry Rice


I have re-posted this recipe for the "Think Beyond the Usual - Fruits" event.

  1. Dry roast the mustard & cumin seeds & grind them to powder.
  2. Grind the cranberries & green chillies into a fine paste.
  3. Heat some oil in a pan & season it with curry leaves & asafoetida. Add the ground cranberry chilli paste & saute it along with some turmeric powder(turmeric powder is optional).
  4. Cook the rice separately. It should not stick to each other.

    Using basmati rice enhances the flavor of this dish.

  5. When the oil separates from cranberry mix add salt, mustard & cumin seed powder.
  6. Mix the rice with the paste & garnish it with coriander leaves or green onions.

    You may also freeze the cranberries to get their benefits all year around.
