Mambazha pulissery recipe, Pulissery

Mambazha pulissery/ Mango pulissery is a sweet and sour side dish prepared with mango, curd and coconut in just 15 to 20 minutes. Super simple right? However simple it is to make this dish is unbelievably delicious and you wouldn’t regret trying it out.

This pulissery is a traditional Kerala recipe where fruits or veggies can be used in its preparation and it will taste yum. This dish is commonly served during lunch alongside rice but it also holds a place during festivity like “Onam Sadhya”.

As mentioned earlier thus dish can be prepared with veggies like plantain, cucumber and with fruits like banana, mango and pineapple. I thought to post this recipe with this golden beauty mango as it super special during summer season and usually for mambazha pulissery small mangoes are used but since I couldn’t get them used 1 medium sized mango for the recipe. As I always say prepare Kerala recipes only with coconut oil to get best of flavors. But if you din’t have any veggies or fruits still you can prepare with just curd and coconut and call it “mor curry” a bit similar to traditional Tamilnadu dish called Vendakka mor kuzhambu and Bonda mor kuzhambu. You can also try checking my Tamil Nadu style kuzhambu recipe with small mangoes here Mambazha kuzhambu.

So let’s get to the making!

  5. When the mixture is little warm add the whisked curd and ¼ cup water if needed. Mix well and keep it aside.
  6. Now heat coconut oil in a small pan to it add dry red chili, mustard seeds, when it splutters add curry leaves. Put off the flame and pour the tempering over the mango pulissery. Serve it along with rice/ choru and parippu curry.
