Mambazha Pulissery – Ripe Mango Yogurt Curry

Here I’m again with a Kerala Special dish, Mambazha Pulissery because as you know Vishu is around the corner.

Mambazha Pulissery

As I said above, I made this Mambazha Pulissery which is important dish on the feast. I have talked about Vishu and the feast in this post. I have explained in detail how Vishu is celebrated. The feast will be scrumptious with so many dishes. When I say, many dishes it should be at least 14 items in your banana leaf. Yes, we eat the feast in banana leaf which itself is a divine experience. Having food in banana leaf have lots of medicinal values. If you haven’t tried, try once and you will know what I’m taking about.

Coming back to recipe, there are lots of Pulissery recipes in Kerala cuisine. Pulissery is basically vegetables cooked in yogurt coconut paste. There are Pumpkin, Cucumber,Raw banana,Yam and more. Here I give you the most popular and delicious Mambazha (Ripe Mango)Pulissery .

How did I make Mambazha Pulissery

As you all would have known by this time my love for mangoes,this Mango Pulissery takes a special place in my menu.The first time I made, I just loved it. The sweetness in little spicy curry with the bit of tangy from yogurt takes your meal to next level. I paired it with Beans uperi. Actually this combines well even with Papadum. There i sRaw Mango Pulissery but this ripe ones are my favorite.

It is so easy as breeze. Grinding coconut with jeera seeds and green chilies and cook along with Mangoes. That’s it.Don’t forget to temper with Coconut Oil. Yes, I stress Coconut Oil.As it gives the dish whole lot flavor.
