Mambazha Pulissery/Mango and Spiced Yogurt Curry

Pulisheri is the most common yogurt based dish in Kerala served with rice. Pulisheri is made  both with vegetables and  fruits . This dish is made with mangoes and is a flavorful dish,light and tasty. The sourness of yogurt is balanced by the sweetness of mangoes.

Yogurt- 2 cup
Grated coconut- 1/2 cup
Green chilly-2
Turmeric powder-1/2 tsp

Fenugreek powder- 1/2 tsp
Mustard seeds-  1/2 tsp
Fenugreek seeds -a few
Chopped shallot- 1
Whole red chilly-1
Curry leaves-2 springs



Peel and cut mangoes into large chunks( if smaller you can just add whole mangoes).

In a sauce pan put mangoes, chilly powder, turmeric,salt and one cup of water. Cover and cook till mangoes are cooked and it becomes a little creamy and thick.

Grind coconut and green chilly into a fine paste using little water and add to the mango mixture,stir and cook in medium flame till it is slightly bubbly in the edges. Blend fenugreek powder and yogurt and add in and simmer for one more minute in low flame.

Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds and fenugreek seeds. When mustard splutters add shallots, red chilly and curry leaves and fry. Add this to the curry and mix. Serve with rice.

  3. This looks absolutely mouthwatering. I've never tried this dish myself. When my parents went to India for a visit last month one of our neighbors invited them for lunch and the aunty there made this dish. Dad fell in love with it (he's not a big mango fan). Thanks to you, I can probably borrow this recipe from you and try to recreate the dish for Dad... Good job!!! :)
