    Hi Aaisha, Cranberries are a type of berries. They are usually sour and can be used as a substitute for tamarind.

    Hi, I was going thro the Cranberry Fish recipe. I was wondering how it would taste with Cranberry.. Will it be little sweet from the fruit?? rgds, Parimala

    Fresh cranberries are very sour to taste. So you can substitute cranberries for tamarind in any recipe. It wont be sweet.
