Masala Cranberry & Mango Sauce

Cranberry sauce made with Indian spices is my way of creating a unique cranberry sauce. Mangoes are in abundance in Kerala. During the mango season, its hard to choose a mango since there’s quite a few varieties to choose from. Hence I thought to combine mangoes into this recipe.The star anise and the cardamom gives a special flavor to this sauce. The aroma of the different spices while cooking this sauce is heavenly.
