Pulihora is a traditional dish made using rice and sour ingredients like tamarind, lemon, etc. I traded the tamarind with cranberries and made this awesome and color popping cranberry pulihora or cranberry rice. Its a great leftover recipe, can be made the day before and packed for lunchbox. If you have the sauce ready, this cranberry pulihora lunchbox can be put together in 15 minutes.
The cranberries are available only during the fall season in US, specifically the thanksgiving season. I combined that with the pumpkin cupcakes which is also another fall favorite of ours and some clementine to complete the meal.
