Roasted Cranberry Potatoes

This is an amazing roasted potato flavored with cranberries and spices! The fresh tart cranberries, meaty potatoes, and spices, all roasted together - the tantalizing flavors - make it divine. This is an amazing one for a fall feast! These are perfect to be served with any cooked grain, roti/flat breads - a perfect side!

I have used Russet potatoes, but any potatoes in hand can be used. Adjust the roasting time as per the potato type and size of the potato chunks. Roast the potatoes in a single layer for better cooking and crisp potatoes. 

I wouldn't recommend swapping the fresh cranberries for a sweetened dried cranberry. The fresh tart cranberries are used in this spicy curry. This is not fiery one but feel free to add a couple of chopped Thai chilies finally to add the heat, I would love to, but my kids can't take that heat. So I skipped it. This is an amazing one though!

Roasted potatoes always add a charm to the dinner table. Especially, this is an amazing choice for Thanksgiving. Both cranberries and potatoes make this an amazing fall recipe! Lemon Potatoes and Aloo Beans Curry are amazing sides to Thanksgiving meal! The flavor profile of Oven Roasted Curried Dutch Potatoes is different from this roasted cranberry potatoes and both are amazing ones packed with rich flavors. These four potatoes are vegan and is perfect for everyone!
