Today I am here with Cranberry Rice recipe. This is a South Indian style rice recipe prepared with fresh cranberries. I love cranberries so much, and when they are in season I buy them in loads and try various recipes with them. I mostly use them for baking but for a change, prepared this cranberry rice. The rice gets its tart flavour and lovely colour from fresh cranberries. I have already prepared this rice before and have posted in my other blog. Since it was too dark to click the pictures, I used my old pictures itself.
This rice is quick to prepare, making it perfect for packing it for lunch. You can serve this rice with appalam, fryums or even chips. This recipe is adapted from Spicy Treats.
