Mambazha Puliserry|Maanga Puliserry|Mango Yogurt kerala style curry|Kerala sadya recipe


Once upon a time,Mambazha puliserry a.k.a ripe mango sweet and sour curry used to create chaos at my home.When I was shmall,I failed to understand why the heck did my mom use a ripe delicious simBly irresistible mango into a curry .I thought this is her one of the way to make me eat rice and curry without a miss.I even thought she invented this curry !

 Guess what ,that made the matter worse, I wouldn't even dare or care to touch or taste that curry as if I wanted to teach mom a lesson - Amma , Mango is a "FRUIT" not a vegetable . For a while, I couldn't even imagine in my wildest dream how a mango would taste as a curry .

I like the mango pieces get little mashed up...
Gone are those days,being away from my mother and motherland ,now everything is delish . Sometimes I sit here drooling and  wondering what was wrong with me , how could I cry over mom-made foods and gave my mom such a hard time then.No wonder now I crave for anything and everything ...All I can do is rekindle,recreate those recipes at least and feel my mom's presence near me always....

So,finally I am coming in terms with turning a ripe mango into a curry , yes I love Mambazha puliserry , I not only enjoy with hot boiled rice and some spicy side dish ,I can even drink that curry like a dessert , as it is :D..."As I always say,Love is blind people !" :D


Mambazha puliserry is a Kerala special mango-yogurt based sweet and sour curry , which holds a very important place in Kerala Onam/Vishu sadya/feast.

This is how I make Kerala special Mambazha puliserry recipe at home in a kachiyastyle :

Mambazha Puliserry 

Ripe mango,medium size - 1 no.
Green chilies - 3 nos
Red chilly powder - 1 teaspoon
Turmeric powder - 1/4 teaspoon
Water - 1-2 cups
Coconut,grated - 3/4 cup
Cumin seeds - 1 teaspoon
Yogurt/Sour curd - 1 cup
Coconut oil - 1 -2 tablespoons
Mustard seeds - 1 teaspoon
Fenugreek seeds - 1 teaspoon
Broken red chillies - 3-4 nos
Curry leaves,a few


Pls watch my video that will show you exactly how I make it.

Notes :
  1.  You can even omit chopping mango pieces and put the medium size mangoes as it is after peeling.If you get small mangoes ,then just peel and put the entire mango into the curry.
  2. If it's too sweet for you,sprinkle some fenugreek powder at the end.Rest tips are there in the video which is must to follow .
  3. I like the mango pieces little mashed up as it makes the curry more flavorful but if you are using full mango then you should be careful not to...
  4. This curry tastes best next day when all the flavors completely sets in.
SO,that's my Mambazha puliserry kerala style,a sweet and sour love story..........Enjoy it as a part of Kerala Sadya or simBly with boiled rice and pair it with some spicy side dish/thorans/mezhukupurratis/fish fry/chicken fry etc .....
