Thanksgiving is almost here, Cranberry season started.  Fresh cranberries are always tempting me. I love making cranberry chutney and cranberry thokku. Thokku is a spicy and tangy thick gravy made out of cranberries. A very simple and easy to make, yet delicious thokku. We can mix the thokku with rice or best served with curd rice.
