(Cranberry Chutney, Karonda Chutney, Kalakai Chutney)

I first tasted cranberries in US. It looked quite similar to Karonda, also known as Kalakai commonly found in India. Many people confuse both these berries. However I want to make it clear that both are different. Kalakai is oval,  lighter in colour with red and white shades. Cranberries are more rounder and has a deep red colour. I recently got my hands on both cranberries and karonda. So i have taken a picture below of both cranberries and karonda side by side so that you can see the difference. The inside is also slightly different.

This cranberry chutney that I have shared below can be made with either cranberries or karonda, whichever you can find. Traditionally Karonda chutney is made in North India. I made slight differences in the recipe. I added roasted peanuts to add some body to the chutney. Alternatively, you can add grated coconut. Either way the chutney has a sour and spicy taste. It tastes awesome, so do try it.
