Gift of the Pickle Addict

09 Mar

From the Kitchen at Blogpourri:


1. Choose firm cranberries

2. Clean (chop off any dry ends near the stems) and dry them completely. There should be no water because water tends to rot the berries and the pickle will get spoilt.

3. Chop the berries into halves

4. Add salt, red chilli powder (paprika) to taste.

5. Add a dash of turmeric powder

6. Add 1 tsp of roasted fenugreek powder (methi powder)

7. Heat sesame seed oil (for 250 gms cranberries, 50 gms oil), add powdered asafoetida and 1 tsp mustard seeds.

8. Wait for the oil mixture to cool and add to the cranberry mix.

9. Enjoy!

    I know! I have bookmarked a few. Some of them have golt recipes so next time the MIL makes a comment re not cooking Andhra stuff, I can whip one up, courtesy Mahanandi or the aptly named ‘Maa Inti Vanta’!!
    Speaking of which, I have decided to join the bandwagon and start my own food blog as well. Well, not a copycat thing but a place to store my gran’s yummy recipes.
