Cranberry Vadu~Pickled Cuties- My contribution to Click- `RED` Photo Event at "Jugalbandi"

I love the taste and versatility of the cranberries~they can be used to make desserts as well as savories.
My obsession for cranberries has resulted in Cranberry Rice, Cranberry Thokku/Pachadi and Cranberry vadu recipe is a variation of Mango Vadu~ a southie`s all time favorite made with tender mangoes. I used cranberries instead and the taste was an absolute delight. Thayir Sadham/curd rice and cranberry vadu is a great combination for all pickle lovers.

List of ingredients :
  1. 4 cups Cranberries
  2. 15 red chillies
  3. 1 tablespoon mustard
  4. ½ teaspoon turmeric
  5. ¼ cup salt
  1. Using mortar and pastel, give a pat on the cranberries just to open them up.
  2. Mix in the turmeric and salt. Leave it on overnight.
  3. Next day grind the red chillies and mustard in a mixer and mix into the cranberries. Mix well and leave it for three days or until the cranberries are soft. Store in a dry and clean glass container with a tight lid. Stays fresh in the refrigerator for few months.
Serve with rice. Goes very well with Curd Rice.

  10. Wow, that is great vadu and love ur click!

  11. Cilantro, I tried the pickle yesterday and it turned out great. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

  12. Cilantro, I tried this one and it was so good. I wanted to write to you 3 days back itself, but somehow got postponed. My mother in law is here and she likes it too. The only thing I have to do the next time is to increase the quantity of red chillies. Since we don't eat very spicy food, I was hesitating to add more, but after tasting the vadu I felt that the sourness of the cranberries really requires a lot of heat. This recipe is definitely a keeper. Thank you very much. I can't wait to try the other cranberry recipes from your blog.

    Wish you a very happy New Year.
