Fresh Cranberry thokku recipe

I have seen cranberries used by several bloggers especially in the USA. I was quite tempted , but never found them in Singapore. This was around 8-9 years ago. But now, we get most of the American products here and I dont miss them any longer. Infact supermarkets like Fairprice Finest and cold storage stores fresh cranberries , all kinds of berries like raspberries and blackberries and many other exotic fruits which was not easily available in the Asian countries before. So when these fresh cranberries were not available before, I have used the dried cranberries which were not so fun to be used in the recipes, but we just snacked them as it is. They were delicious!! I had even tried making a similar kind of relish with it several years ago.Cranberry thokku     So when I found this fresh cranberries in the supermarket here, I immediately picked it up .It was late november and I knew that I had an trip to India coming up. I did not have much time in hand to use them, but too reluctant to let it go. I tried my best, but could not use them. I just placed them in a ziploc bag and kept them for freezing. So its only this april, I actually got to lay my hands on them. They looked fresh as ever and tempting as always. cranberry pickle     As I tasted one for the first time, it seemed quite tart. I decided to make thokku or a spicy pickle . Thokku is a popular thing in Tamil nadu and is usually made with raw mangoes or tomato . I have tasted one even made with green chillies.But of course, people make with many other vegetables and fruits. So this one with cranberries turned out really awesome. My family really love it and this relish is in demand always whether it be with chapatis or curd rice. I love with my dal rice too.
